Goodbyes made

Last night at 10:35, my sister Laura lost her fight with cancer at home. She has been in the company of family and friends this last week. The cancer that has been causing her so much pain finally took its toll and she died peacefully in her sleep.
Memories of times spent with her came flooding in last night and still continue. Laura always lived a life worthy of admiration, she was as intelligent as she was passionate. I will miss her so much.

Thinking and praying for you and your family. Again dear friend...if you need someone to talk to or someone to cry with or just someone to sit with you...know that I am here for you. I love you.

Your friend always,

Words are like water in the ocean
But words are all I have to offer
You've done MORE than ALL can do
To make Laura's days brighter
And she will remember you for it
Just as you remember her

In the kaleidoscopic haze of memory
You will see the beautiful glow
Of private moments shared
Around the family table
In cozy coffee houses
On meandearing road trips
At roudy eating places
And quiet late night conversations

You'll see the texture and the hues
Of laughter, smiles, and tears
You'll see its gradations and all its nuances
You will see it all in your time of grief
Because LOVE lights your looking glass
And changes the dark to sublime colored thoughts

we're here for you...
