Hooch by Owen and Marlene Hedrick / Owen, Marlene, and Madeline

To Hooch–

My dearest friend on all this earth,
My brother, although not by birth,
We walked together many years,
You, by my side, through joy and tears.

You went home. I stayed behind,
But you are always on my mind.
We’ll walk together once again,
My loving brother, dearest friend.

M. E. Hedrick


With love,
