She has turned a brittle, final page, cloaked in the somber dregs of age Not one would guess her youthful glory nor she ever speak her fabled story Silently through azure piercing eyes defines what intellect within her lies What has taken her exceptional being and left her mute as if never seeing? Oh she of sparkling wit and iron will, she is yet my friend I perceive it still Yet we shall not talk of great and small for sadly she has, long ago, left us all ©Roger Eugene Corell September 25, 2007 Used With Permission All Rights Reserved By Author Mail <')))))))>< Strive always to walk in the shoes of the Great Fisherman

This is written in honor and memory of a very special friend of nearly fifty years. Zelda Ann Karamitroes has been the best friend to my wife, my family, and I for many years. She introduced my wife and I to each other. Her sparkling wit brightened the restaurant she and the Karamitroes family owned and operated for over forty years in Mason City, Iowa. Her many kindnesses' to her friends, her customers and her employees will never be forgotten. The infirmities of age have robbed much from her and stolen a wonderful friend. God bless our precious memories.
