Lessons of a Late Friend -

I knew he didn't have long to live.

I was sitting next to him on a cold bench at Brighton beach, staring out at the ocean.

"I want to tell you some crap," he said. "Pass it on."

And then he began telling me the things he'd learned in his short time on this planet. The kind of things we all need reminding of from time to time, but we oh-so-easily forget.

How you can help - Letter to My Friend

This is the Link     "How You Can Help Me"

Please talk about my loved one, even though he is gone. It is more comforting to cry than to pretend that he never existed. I need to talk about him, and I need to do it over and over.

The Article Is Here

When I received the phone call that my 47-year old husband had died of a heart attack, I was pushed into a dimension of existence I had been unaware of so far. I was unable to eat or sleep for three days and nights, running on something unknown inside of me. Once fitful sleep…

I will never be the same

If I begin to dance

does it mean I am too alive?

If I sing again

Does it mean I have forgotten you are gone?

If I laugh out loud

does it mean I have forgotten

You are forever silent?

If a day goes by

without a tear

is your memory fading?

If your name

is not spoken

does it mean you never were?

If my heart is light for an instant

does it mean I mourn you less?

And If I should get through a day

without the image of your…

From Hay House by Christina Rasmussen

Imagine living a beautiful life with your husband and two baby daughters. You have just moved to a new state and city, loving every moment of it. I was 30 years old and he was 31. Change happened fast, as if in a scary movie. The ground we walked on shifted and we had to learn to fly…

Grieving My Friend

Wayne,My friend, it is just as hard to believe you're gone, as it is for me to believe Jeremy is gone. When I look at your picture, I still have to remind myself that you are no longer here. I have to tell ya, when I remember that you have passed on, it feels like I've been lied to. But I think that's because we knew each other for so long. That, and the fact that you and I have a child together made losing you very hard. Plus, you passed away 1 year and 4 days after Jeremy. I have no idea what…See More
