Shelburne Poet Laureate Rick Bessette wrote a poem in memory of Connor (2002-2017).

On Angels Wing, by Rick Bessette

On angels wing you left us
Your work now completed here.
We carry you in our hearts,
In our thoughts, you’re always near.

So many things you taught us
In the short time you were here.
To share our love and laughter,
Take time to listen and hear.

We see you in the sunsets,
Hear you in the gentle breeze
That touch the wild flowers
In meadows beyond the trees.

We look up to the night sky,
And the brightest star;
A place of peace and comfort
Knowing that is where you are.

Your YELLOW BENCH comforts us
For your spirit lingers there.
We understand your mission
Was to love, to laugh and care.
