Verna M. Woolsey, Independence, passed away peacefully on the evening of April 2nd, 2023, in Coffeyville, Kansas. No services are planned at this time.

"I see you there atop a rise that overlooks a sun-touched plain, the howling gale of a rolling storm now behind your back.

I watch you move through ebbing blades of incandescent waves of grain, the wind now a soft breeze that sings upon the grass along your newfound track.

A crimson dawn beyond hums with shafts of light that cut through the lines of rain, and the warm rays that prove gentle touch push back the clouds of grey and black.

A song that plays for journeys to come, a melody absent a weight of weary travelers' pain, to shepard those memories lived to that somber place beyond the horizon's crack.

To show those left behind to endure that storm a course to navigate that narrow lane, their souls soon to come up into that wind with miles aback.

To find you there in the curious beyond when their time has wane, to hear the sound of a hopeful dawn and the song which calls us all back."

- Nick Woolsey
