“Top of the morning to you all”

Her signature salute to the world and a

Prodigious on-line world it was that responded

To her upbeat request that all be well another day.

She had a heart as big as her Facebook universe

And an ever ready desire to help wherever help

was needed. Homes for rats, ducks, dogs, cats

Chickens, eggs or people all potentially doable with

A joke or a word of up building when doable came

a Little harder.

Small but mighty, my daughter

I will see you again soon in a lovely,

kinder, better world

So…Top of that morning, Min,

Top of the morning.
