Mary Kirk says
What is there to say? What is there to do? What could possibly serve as a fitting tribute to the passing of such a remarkable and well-lived life? I can only shed tears of gratitude that such a one as he existed on this earth and blessed us all with his wisdom, insight and generosity of spirit.
And, to my dear Riane, I send love and light in the hope that you feel supported in taking the next step, and then the one after that. Because, in the end, that is all those of us that are left can do–put one foot in front of the other. I know well that that that is a lesson you have already learned many times in this life.
