How far is the same place to go to if the grass between my toes
can feel like home
How loud is the whispering tree asking me to sit here
watching spring try to break free
All these Independent moments are beautiful like you, you, you
exactly like this
Morning is nothing but this…
Morning is home

In "It's a Wonderful Life," George Bailey wishes he had never been born. His wish is granted, and he finds himself at the grave of his brother Harry. George's guardian angel tells him, "Harry broke through the ice and died at age nine." George replied, "That's a lie! Harry got the Congressional Medal of Honor for saving the lives of the men on that transport." And Clarence explains, "Every man on that transport died. Harry was not there to save them because you were not there to save Harry. Isn't it strange how each life touches so many other lives." (from 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!" (from 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.
