  8. In Memory of Linda Hozeska Waiting for Butterfly Wings When life brings you difficult problems to face & when nothing goes smoothly along, Rembmber-until it must leap through the rocks,a stream has no sparkle or song. At times when you’re shadowed by trouble & care like a storm cloud that won’t go away, Remember-one sunbeam can banish the dark with a single, dependable ray.When you must be patient in loss or defeat or the sorrow that life sometimes brings, Remember-in time,from a plain brown cocoon comes the beauty of butterfly wings. You have shown many times before how beautiful you are on the inside…And that’s how I know your heart will find its wings again. Love, your friend Rosebud
