Bio

The movie, "It's a Wonderful Life," has a great scene where George Bailey wishes he had never been born. His wish is granted by his guardian angel, and he finds himself at the headstone of his brother Harry. George's guardian angel tells him, "Harry broke through the ice and died at the age of nine." George angrily reply, "That's a lie! Harry went to war, got the Congressional Medal of Honor, and saved the lives of every man on that transport." But Clarence explains, "Every man on that transport died. Harry was not there to save them because you were not there to save Harry. Strange, isn't it? Each life touches so many other lives." (Contributor Larry Barnes.)


"The reality is that you will grieve forever. You do not get over losing a loved one, but you learn to live with it. You heal and rebuild around the losses you suffer. You may be whole, but you will never be the same. Nor should you be. Nor would you want to be!" (Elizabeth Kubler Ross)


We thought of you with love today,
but that was nothing new.
We thought about you yesterday
and days before that too.
We think of you in silence
and sometimes speak your name.
Now all we have is memories
like pictures in a frame.
Your life is now a keepsake
with which we'll never part.
God with you in His keeping;
us with you in our heart.
