A day of sadness.....

Today will be a hard day. Yesterday Russ lost his life. He is no longer suffering. He will always be with us in spirit. I am so thankful that Russ could spend his final days at home with family.

Don't think of him as gone away -
His journey has just begun
Life holds many facets
The Earth is only one
Just think of him as resting
From the sorrows and the tears
In a place of warmth and comfort
Where there are no days and years
Think how he must be wishing
That we could know today
How nothing but our sadness
can really pass away
And think of him as living
In the hearts of those he touched
For nothing loved is ever lost-
And he was loved so much.
