"If I think about anybody who has ended their human experience then they are still here.

Their continued presence is glorified by the feeling of love in my heart which is nurtured by their spirits."

Thanks, Ray.

A man I know -- someone from years ago, he must be 70 by now -- just reached out to me by google chat. He was very drunk. His grandson died of leukemia seven months ago after years of suffering.

I wish he weren't drinking. I sent him something grtgrandpa wrote, but I don't think he'll be able to feel it.

Oh, to be remembered at the end of our days, to be cherished, loved and honored because of our caring ways. To have touched so many lives. To have been a beacon of hope when only despair remains. What more could one ask for?

I believe when I go, when I cross over to the other side, I will be asked only one question: How well did you love?

RIP beautiful man. I wish I could have known you personally, but your words are working on me today.

A "Today I Am Grateful For" post:

Quote:
the love in my heart which offsets the disease in my brain

prayer and meditation that accompanies the love

tolerance, forgiveness, and compassion which results from recovery

my SR companions walking the path with me today
