  • There are no goodbyes for us. Wherever you are, you will always be in my heart. I know, that we never lose the people we love, even to death. They continue to participate in the thoughts and decisions we make. Their love leaves an indelible imprint in our memories. We find comfort in knowing that our lives have been enriched by having shared their love. Some people come into our lives, enter our hearts, and we are never the same. It is not length of life, but depth of life. What moves through us is a silence, a quiet sadness, a longing for one more day, one more word, one more touch. We may not understand, why you left this earth so soon, or why you left before we were ready to let you leave, but little by little, we begin to remember, that you lived. And that your life gave us memories too beautiful to forget. You lived, you loved, you left your mark, and you taught us all how to be better in our lives, and We are so blessed…
