Farewell

Today is the anniversary of my father’s death. Throughout his life he suffered from polio, osteoarthritis, Alzheimers and finally cancer. He was a happy and gentle soul who did not deserve to suffer.

Tears of sadness break our hearts,
As we stand here missing your company.
But these tears are for ourselves,
And for the empty hole in our lives.
You are set free –
No longer bound to this world in pain,
You are now part of the universe,
A star shining down,
Lighting our way and twinkling, smiling,
Shining forever in our hearts.
~Helen Szafer~

Look to your health, and if you have it, praise God, and value it next to a good conscience; for health is the second blessing that we mortals are capable of, a blessing money cannot buy.
~Izaak Walton~
