When you don't know what to say...

Little did I know
morning glory that he passed:
Farewell my old friend.

When you don't know what to say...

We’ve all been at a loss for words confronted with the unexpected news
of the loss of our friend Steven Langford, only 47 years young.

I dedicate this poppy to him, and to his family.

The poppy is, especially in Britain where Steve lived, such an important remembrance symbol.
- The symbolism of the poppy, its use in literature, and its role in the ritual of remembrance is enormous

For me Poppies are a short-lived flower -
indeed, here it symbolises well Steve's life -
which was also too short.

The poppy , flowering each year with the coming of the warm weather,
brings life, hope, color and reassurance to those still fighting cancer.
