You're in our prayers Mel.

I2F;
You were a mentor to some, a friend to many and an inspiration to all.
You are home and that is a joyful and comforting thought.
To Mel and family I am sorry for your loss, tonight my prayers are for you.

More sad news on an already gloomy day. Saddened to hear and inspired by his courage to live life on his terms. Fair winds. i2f.

The Ship

A ship sails and I stand watching till she fades on the horizon and someone at my side says She is gone.

Gone where? Gone from my sight, that is all. She is just as large now as when I last saw her. Her diminished size and total loss from my sight is in me, not in her.

And just at that moment, when someone at my side says she is gone, there are others who are watching her coming over their horizon and other voices take up a glad shout - There she comes!

That is what dying is. An horizon and just the limit of our sight.

Lift us up O Lord, that we may see further.


Please accept my sincere condolences to all family and friends.

Hadn't realized this thread had taken this sad turn. My condolences to his family.

Free, is the heart, that lives not, in fear.
Full, is the spirit, that thinks not, of falling.
True, is the soul, that hesitates not, to give.
Alive, is the one, that believes, in love.
