We knew you before you were created.
We picked your colors, your patterns, your decorations.
We planted your grass, your flowers, your trees.
We built your fence, your gates, your garden.
We cleaned your floors, your bathrooms, your windows.... over and over.
We love you.
You gave us warmth, shelter, and comfort.
You were a nest to birth 4 children in.
You were our first school room.
You graciously hosted many Christmas, Thanksgiving and Easter dinners.
You endured countless birthday parties with many many children running up and down your stairs.
You stood strong against children drawing on your walls and floors, and banging on your doors.
You loved us.
We will always remember you!
