Don’t think of him as gone away. His journey’s just begun. Life holds so many facets. This earth is only one. Just think of him as resting. From the sorrow and the tears, in a place of warmth and comfort with no days or months or years. Think how he must be wishing that we could now today, that nothing but our sadness can really pass away. And think of him as living in the hearts of those he touched, for nothing loved is ever lost and he was loved so much.
