Rest in Peace, Dear Friend

“You can shed tears that she is gone, or you can smile because she has lived. You can close your eyes and pray that she’ll come back, or you can open your eyes and see all she’s left. Your heart can be empty because you can’t see her, or you can be full of the love you shared. You can turn your back on tomorrow and live yesterday, or you can be happy for tomorrow because of yesterday. You can remember her only that she is gone, or you can cherish her memory and let it live on. You can cry and close your mind, be empty and turn your back. Or you can do what she’d want: smile, open your eyes, love and go on.”

  1. My friend, this is lovely…and something I intend to return to. I am so sorry for your loss. The post that you did about Pat a while ago was a wonderful tribute to an obviously special woman.

    You and your mom are both in my prayers tonight.
