“Fear not, sweet love, the hands of time, for poems do not always rhyme, fate runs its course and plays its tricks, and in the last and final mix, one wins it all and loses naught, if love was good and battles fought to their very final end, good-bye sweet love, farewell, my friend.”
There will be a private graveside service at Riverview Cemetery, North Bucksport, at a later date. Arrangements are under the direction of Mitchell-Tweedie Funeral Home and Cremation Services, 28 Elm St., Bucksport. (mitchelltweedie-young.com)
