My deepest sympathies Margaret to you and your family Group hug
It happens in a flash, but the memory of it last forever. It can not be borrowed or stolen, and it is of no earthly good until it is given away. So if in your hurry you meet someone who is too weary to smile, leave him one of yours, for no one needs a smile quite as much as he who has none to give...

I am sad today because
Well.... my big brother recently passed away and every now and again -- with no warning -- his loss swamps me. I believe I will see him again and I feel this should lighten the grief -- but it doesn't. I feel like my cheeks have salt tattoos etched that will never fade.

When I see him again...he is gonna get it. I don't need any more wrinkles or cracks. I am not complaining but just trying to understand the experience. My parents are gone. I have lost other siblings. This is very different.
Don't squat with yer spurs on!

People try to turn back their "odometers." Not me. I want people to know 'why' I look this way. I've traveled a long way and some of the roads weren't paved
