"At the end of your life, you will never regret not having passed one more test, not winning one more verdict or not closing one more deal.  You will regret time not spent with a husband, a friend, a child or a parent."
~ Barbara Pierce Bush  June 8, 1926 - April 17, 2018

Her life had such an impact on many some near and others far
like a stone cast upon a river that ripples out
 from one generation to another and heart to heart

We knew her our whole lives a figure in papers and on the TV screen
always upholding honesty and integrity a giver and mentor to hopes and dreams

She will be missed greatly but her legacy is alive and ever strong
for when one gives and teaches so many
it shall inspire for decades and centuries long.
