Thank you for your vulnerability, and for sharing your grieving in such a moving way. For those we deeply love and cherish who have passed, we become the vessels of what they loved, their eyes, their heart, their voice. We become them, and live out their dreams as our own.

Grief is such a humbling emotion with power, force, and longevity. It turns us inside out. You're so brave to honestly share yours. We're such a fragile species. And the world keeps turning with no time-outs. You're not alone and thank you for sharing the humanity we all possess. We all gain strength from each other when we share our experience.

What a gift to give -- to we who soon follow.... We Thank you for that and the thought that like Ed, I am doing just that--by moving to Hawaii where my family and my service to my country meant the most to me. You have given me comfort that we also did something right for us and the memorable uplifting moments of the life we shared with those we love. πŸ•ŠπŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈπŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈπŸ•Š

It's around every corner, Ramona, isn't it?

A friend lost his wife recently and I said to him that if he could see grief as his friend and not his enemy, the whole thing might change - more gentle and less like a world war against one's senses. Do you think that's possible?

Kindest regards...
