A dear friend is gone

Postby ShadowCat » 11 Apr 2014, 06:43

yesterday we got a call from a dear friend that her husband passed unexpectedly. He was just 50, and a childhood friend of my man. A gentle, natureloving, man gone... like that... poof... It's so hard to grasp...

It reminds me painfully how we take the presence of friends in our life for granted, that there will always be a tomorrow, next week, next month to get together and celebrate your friendship. While the truth is, that we can all drop at a moments notice.
Three sounds one should treasure:
the whisper of the wind through the leaves
the songs of one's heart
the callings of the universe

Golden Harps are like cookies, you can never have just one
Sacred spaces and places

My condolences to all.

Mourn in full measure, but celebrate the life equally.
May the long time sun shine upon you,
All love surround you,
And the pure light within you,
Guide your way on.

Thank you Nolliag

Any word can carry comfort and compassion and the most beautiful words can be hollow...

It is really surreal, to know that a friend is just gone from your life.
