Robert Ainslie Greenman


Greenman-DeathJuly 9, 1936 – July 30, 2013

To my children:
You are not all the child of my body…
You are all the children of my heart…
Not all the flesh of my flesh…
But you are the joy of my life…
You are the fulfillment of my dreams,
The answer to my prayers,
Gifts of god
For which I’m truly thankful…
You are wonderfully my own…
And I love you
As only parents can love their own…
