In Memory of Veronica Crick CL, CC

Yellow… Her Favourite Colour

I would like to share a poem I wrote on behalf of Speak To Inspire Toastmasters Club. Veronica Crick will be deeply missed after losing the battle to cancer Friday Oct 26th 2018. by Tuula Redditt

As she walked through the doors,
The room filled with light,
Dressed in beautiful yellow,
And a smile so bright.

As she walked up on stage,
For the very first time,
We saw her great strength,
And we knew she’d be fine.

Have you ever had lemons,
Thrown at your head?
That day we had caught them,
And made … Lemonade!

She spoke of life challenges,
So powerfully sour,
Adding sugar and ice,
To give her the power.

Yellow… her favourite colour,
I see everywhere I go,
like the large yellow maple,
Shining through the front door.

Her magnanimous spirit,
Will always live on,
In all who were touched
By her spirit so strong.

We will never forget,
Her message she made,
When life throws you lemons,
Then make lemonade!
