I believe that time will come and I am sure we will be the best of friends. Believing we will meet again, keeps us going. I always say, the best of us go first, so we may prepare the way for those who come after. It keeps me going.. knowing there is someone there waiting for us. In your grief, remember all that is good, all those happy times, all those times where a parent makes sacrifices so that their children can live a better life.
