What we have once enjoyed we can never lose…

All that we love deeply becomes a part of us.

May the stars carry your sadness away,

May the flowers fill your hearty with beauty,

May hope forever wipe away your tears,

And above all, may silence make you strong.

– Chief Dan George


To lose someone you love, is to alter your life forever….

The pain stops, there are new people, but the gap never closes…

This hole in your heart is the shape of the one you lost – no one else can fit it. 

– Jeanette Winterson
