And I know that no words can erase the feelings of loss & sadness, but this short poem brings me some solace:
"Sometimes when I first awake
I think that you're still here
And for a fleeting moment
The clouds all disappear.
For you brought endless sunshine
Until you went away,
And now I miss you desperately
Each minute of the day.
You would not like to see me sad
So what I try to do,
Is live a bright and happy life
In memory of you.
For though I'll always miss you
And it's dreadful being apart,
I haven't really lost you
You're still here in my heart."
Yours in philanthropy,
