Although it's difficult today to see beyond the sorrow, looking back in memory
will help comfort you tomorrow.
Friends are the pillars on your porch. Sometimes they hold you up, sometimes
they lean on you, and sometimes it's just enough to know that they are standing by.
While we are mourning the loss of our friend, others are rejoicing to meet him
behind the veil.
He who has gone, so we but cherish his memory, abides with us, more potent, nay,
more present than the living man.
Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
The mystery of love is greater than the mystery of death.
While both joy and sorrow are fleeting, and often intertwined,
love has the power to overcome both, and love can last forever.
Deb Plouse Fulton, in A Second Chicken Soup for the Woman's Soul
Photographs are precious memories . . . the visual evidence of place and time and relationships
. . . ritual talismans for the treasure chest of the heart.
Robert Fulghum, in From Beginning to End
To live in the hearts we leave behind is not to die. Thomas Campbell
If I am to wear this mourning cloak, let it be made of the fabric of love,
woven by the fine thread of memory. Molly Fumia, in Safe Passage, Conari Press
