DD - Z"L

It is with deep sorrow that I announce the passing of DD, the husband of my friend, mentioned in my previous post. He passed away just over a month ago, peacefully, having had the opportunity to say goodbye to his family. A terrible, terrible tragedy; such a useless loss of a vibrant young life. And yet, there is also relief. Relief that he is finally free of pain and suffering, relief that he is no longer trapped.

Not a day goes by that I do not think of my poor, brave friend, and all that she has lost. I am amazed at her will and courage to go on, despite being dealt this cruelest of blows. Her wonderful, supportive family cannot fill the hole she feels in her heart, the emptiness left behind by the loss of her best friend, her partner. Despite this, she has chosen to continue living, to not allow herself to be beaten by his death. I am awed by her strength and decisive will.

Never take your loved ones for granted, for you never know what tomorrow may bring.

    The Star
    (1)

    Twinkle, twinkle, little star!

    How I wonder what you are,

    Up above the world so high,

    Like a diamond in the sky.

    (2)

    When the blazing sun is gone,

    When he nothing shines upon,

    Then you show your little light,

    Twinkle, twinkle all the night.
    (3)

    The dark blue sky you keep

    And often thro' my curtains peep,

    For you never shut your eye

    Till the sun is in the sky.

    (4)

    'Tis your bright and tiny spark

    Lights the traveler in the dark;

    Though I know not what you are
    Twinkle, twinkle, little star!
