Peace

My brother died at 5:02 this morning.  He lived his life with a quiet, sweet dignity I hope all his siblings can emulate some day.   Thank you for all the good wishes.

Oh Geoff, I'm so very sorry. It's odd...because my father died 16 years ago late last night...the 19th. Please know how much I'm thinking about you and your family. I'm sending as much peace and comfort in just the right doses. Big hugs during a very difficult time.

Geoff, I am truly sorry to hear of your brothers passing. I lost my best friend to cancer last year. I cant agree with you more ... "let those whom you love, know that you love them". After she died I felt guilty blogging, but many people told me to continue since she was my biggest supporter. To go along with your thoughts ...

"The last time I spoke to Diane was a week before she left us. I called to say hi and see how the chemo went. She was loopy ... way loopy. But she still managed to smile through the phone. We made plans to get together soon, said I love you and hung up. I never spoke to her again.



When bad things happen to good people we try to make sense of it. This was hard to do this time. Diane was nothing but good. But in the end it did teach me to cherish people and your time with them. The phrase "Time is short" is used a lot but its so very true. Don't put off that lunch with your friend. Don't delay that call to your mom or dad that you keep putting off because life gets in the way. Because that's what life is. Its your bonds with your fellow humans. Its your love for that friend that one day is gone and you pray that they know how much you loved them."
