Guest Book
For my graduation, Grandpa Richard gave me a beautiful book of poems by Rilke. Reading it again now, this poem seemed a fitting goodbye to my wonderful Grandfather:

The Flower of Farewell

Somewhere the flower of farewell is blooming.
Endlessly it yields its pollen, which we breathe.
Even in the breeze of this beginning hour we breathe farewell.
