This Monday morning brings with it the thoughts of two people I have known who died recently.
My daughter's boyfriend's Mother, a kind and gentle woman not much older than me, died rather suddenly and unexpectedly in the middle of last week. She was home alone and died during the night of heart failure. They are an ultra-private family, thus I do not know much more than this, and do not know if or when there will be a memorial service, or celebration of life, as these gatherings are often referred to these days.
In memory of Karen, I will say this: I was honored to know you, Karen. You were such an honest and peaceful person. You brought up three great kids, and I am grateful to have known you. Now you are in the land of souls, and will hopefully reunite with your beloved husband Jerry. Peace to you always and blessings to your spirit's journey.
Someone who volunteered at a local nonprofit organization where I volunteered, back in the '90s, a boisterous and very much alive man named Dennis, originally from Brooklyn, New York, also died last week. I still remember the marvelous Italian dinners Dennis prepared for the people who came to our nonprofit "clubhouse", mostly homeless folks. You will always be very much alive in my memories, Dennis.
You and your girlfriend Julie did so much to help and inspire the homeless people in this town; this will never be forgotten!
Human bodies do not last forever, yet spirits are eternal. Do I sound like a preacher here? Don't mean to.
I will treasure the memories of these two people, both of whom were much too young to go, in my humble opinion.
Peace to their families.
