It's been a very sad week.
Hard to believe that it's been a week already. A week ago today.
Impossible to fathom how life just rushes on in the face of death...the loss of a friend...a mother...a wife...
There are jobs to get back to , classes to make up, bills to pay...the daily details of our lives...
But we must take time to grieve...to face our losses...to feel the crushing sorrow, brave the immeasurable pain...
However, in our grief, we must also take time to remember the good times, the laughter, the beauty of the life that once touched ours.
Our loved ones never leave us, really, when we keep our fondest memories of them alive in our hearts.
Yes, our love for our dear ones, our memories of them, keeps us together. Forever.
Patty touched so many lives...
A Bridge Called Love
It takes us back to brighter years,
to happier sunlit days
and to precious moments
that will be with us always.
And these fond recollections
are treasured in the heart
to bring us always close to those
from whom we had to part.
There is a bridge of memories
from earth to Heaven above...
It keeps our dear ones near us
It's the bridge that we call love.
