Ascension

Today many people gathered...remembered...and celebrated a life  ...   taken too soon.

The following is from the service today...for those who leave before we do. 

     And if I go,
     While you're still here...
Know that I live on,
Vibrating to a different measure
-behind a thin veil you cannot see through.
     You will not see me,
     So you must have faith.
I wait for the time when we can soar together again,
     --both aware of each other.
Until then, live your life to its fullest.
     And when you need me,
Just whisper my name in your heart,
     .... I will be there.
                                     --Colleen Hitchcock

That is truly beautiful...and helpful to me of late.    What made you post that?  Did I miss something?  If I did, I'm sorry....

it's a rare talent that can express the deepest emotions in words. I'm sorry that this was a time of loss, but thank you for taking the time to share that.

A lovely poem for a very special service.  We had a boy who lost a life on the road outside of our allotment this week and it is breaking my heart.  People will not slow down on our road.  It is out a ways kind of isolated where we are and they drive by too fast.  The man driving who hit the boy was drunk.  He lives right behind us.  So sad.  Claims he did not know it happened.  The police found him though.  Hugs,
