    In introspection of Jane Long,
    I see the ills she fought so strong,
    Her sense of humor, which she penned,
    The yearly Christmas wit she’d lend.

    Her hardship, courage gave me hope,
    Enabled me to better cope;
    From lemons she made lemonade,
    She gave us light where there was shade.

    At church it was I knew her first,
    Her mom and dad, their faith well versed;
    A family no more closely knit,
    Their outward love of God owed it.

    But to her poetry I owe,
    Her rhyming verse I came to know;
    And so it is in rhyme I write,
    As due this poet I saw light.

    George Kittell (and Bonnie)
