Vol.2..Norwegian Farmer’s Son..May 9th

May 9th……..“GRANDPA, AS GREAT GRANDMA CLARICE GOT OLDER, WAS IT HARD TO KISS AND SAY GOODBYE EACH TIME YOU FLEW BACK HOME”?

POEM – “To Kiss Her Cheek” by N. Elliott Noorlun. This was written in the Spring of 2016, just one year before the Lord took our lovely mother with Him to Heaven in June of 2017. Every year, it got tougher and more emotional for me to leave her apartment with that one last goodbye kiss. Would this be the last time I see her on earth? Only our loving God knew, and in 2017 He called her Home to be with Him.

Elliott gave lots of slobbery kisses TO his mommy, Clarice, in that Summer of 1954.

One more time, To kiss her cheek,

One more time, Her face I seek.

Elliott got lots of “poor little boy” kisses FROM his mommy when he slid down the backing of a sofa at their dear farm neighbors, Charlie and Mabel Heitzeg in the Spring of 1955.

One more time, To hear her voice,

Song to my ear, Of finest choice.

It’s now 2009 and Elliott’s mother, Clarice, is now 90 years “young”.

And now in, Her 97th year,

She thinks of others, What a dear!!!

This cute wall hanging was on the wall at Clarice’s Senior Apartment. She LOVED to quilt for giving blankets to others in need and for family to enjoy.

Though harder now, To even stand,

A new quilt’s created, As she’s planned.

It’s Clarice’s 98th birthday in March of 2017. This would be the last time Elliott came for his mommy kiss because later, in June, his mother was called Home to Heaven. ><> ;-(

When our Heavenly Father, Calls her Home,

Whilst I remain, On this earth to roam,

I’ll ponder moments, Just like this,

When I joyfully came, For one more kiss!!! ><>

Since 2017, Elliott’s mother now rests beside her handsome Norwegian husband, Russell.
