From Rilke.

" In the end, those who were carried off early no longer need us:

they are weaned from earth's sorrows and joys,
as gently as children outgrow the soft breasts of their mothers.
But we, who do need such great mysteries,
we for whom grief is so often the source of our spirit's growth--:
could we exist without them?"


(go with God, John Fritz.)

Amen to your words, Lisa. What a beautiful and fitting tribute to a wonderful man. He will be sorely missed.
