“The good people never die.”
“What do you mean?” Sky glanced at Leon. He was staring straight ahead and he looked really sad. She wondered if he’d lost someone too.
“They live on in the things they said and did – they live on inside of us.”
― Siobhan Curham, Tell it to the Moon
Late yesterday I learned my friend, Margie, lost her husband, Paul, after a long battle with cancer. Margie, I send you my love and prayers. May your memories comfort you as your family and friends surround you with their love and care.
As my good friend Judi reminds me, the longer we live the more people we will say good-bye to.
I never have been so good with reality.
Treasure those you love, my dear friends.
It certainly has been a month filled with not so gentle reminders.
“I am always saddened by the death of a good person. It is from this sadness that a feeling of gratitude emerges. I feel honored to have known them and blessed that their passing serves as a reminder to me that my time on this beautiful earth is limited and that I should seize the opportunity I have to forgive, share, explore, and love. I can think of no greater way to honor the deceased than to live this way.”
May Tom, John, and Paul all rest in peace. What a picture that thought creates in my mind!
Yes, God does have a marvelous sense of humor.
Take time to be kind and may God bless us all.
~Peace be with you~
