In Memory of Forrest Foltz
In memory of Forrest FOLTZ, who succumbed to C.O.P.D. on August 8, 1995, in Mesa, Arizona.
Even though he lives on in our hearts, we miss him very much. His happy disposition shined through even when he struggled
to breathe. His humor and acceptance of that which he could not change was contagious. Words cannont express how much we

Dedicated To The Memory Of My Grandfather, Forrest Foltz
by John Paul Jones
Yellow streams of light
glide past a thoursand clouds
playing their indidivual collective parts
in the dream that is our surroundings
The formless gifts
that one bequeathes to his brothers
and sisters in the struggle of existence
invigorates the life force of each soul.
A living phantom
breathes strength into weakness.
And a cash register informs the store
clerk that change is due.
Below the rocky cliffs of reality
in the chasms of my mind
I strolled down a sidewalk
during a storm
and came upon a clown
laughing hysterically to himself.
And while taking a break to breathe,
he mentioned to me
tha life is all a show
and that it is important
to keep them laughing as they go.
As the day ends
and an orange glow illuminates the
it is obvious
that very little has changed today.
As the people one by one
click off the televeision,
a silence can be heard
and before sleep is achieved,
tiny feet of thought
scurry around in the mind
and try to crowd their way
to oblivion and eternity.
