It was an interesting day.
Sharing memories, tears and laughter with people who came together to honour and love a man who touched all of our hearts in the most beautiful way.
It occurred to me that we’re really all the same, struggling to find our way through this sorrow and as I gazed into new and familiar eyes, I realized we are all cut from the same cloth.
Losing someone you love tears people apart; it rips at the very fabric of bonds that were possibly made in heaven.
But unconditional love…
Now, this jewel, brings us all back together, reuniting souls in our grief and loss, giving us a little closure, perhaps a bit of peace and a whole lot of grace. It reminds us of who we really are. And it shows that the one we loved so much…was truly made from~
As painful as this entire thing has been for you, I’m glad to read you managed to find some comfort at the memorial for Brian. Hold on to that feeling. Know you’re not ever alone in this and there’s people standing behind you to catch you when you fall.
Man does not die, for death’s not true;
We’ll just pass on to joys anew…

Thank you, sweet girl. Now I have to do it all again, next Sat. 😛
