I'll be seeing you in all the old familiar places that this old heart of mine embraces

Billie Holiday


“Grief can't be shared. Everyone carries it alone; his own burden in his own way.”

Anne Morrow Lindbergh



Those we love never truly leave us… there are things that death cannot touch.

Jack Thorne



"Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, love leaves a memory no one can steal."


"There are three needs of the griever: To find the words for the loss, to say the words aloud and to know that the words have been heard."

Victoria Alexander

"Nothing in this world compares to the comfort and security of having someone just hold your hand."

Richelle E. Goodrich
