So very true

This poem, oft attributed to an anonymous Native American, was actually written by Baltimore housewife Mary Frye in 1932. Mary was moved by the grief of a young Jewish woman staying with them who's mother fell ill and died in Germany.

The poem later became popular with families of servicemen killed in war, especially when no body is recovered.
