One Last Time

It's been quite a few weeks filled with many intense experiences, the most important one being the loss of a dear friend just a few days ago. It is so difficult to express all the emotions surrounding losing the 'WildMan' as he was affectionately known for so many years, but I'll give it a try. Bill was a very kind man. He was a man of principles with lots of tolerance for those without so many. He was a fine example to his children of what a good person is ( and they took that to heart). He really lived his life...the one he wasn't supposed to have...the one that was supposed to only last a year or so (according to the doctors way back then). He was a very loved husband. He left behind a lot of people who loved him very much as well. He is already sorely missed. We are glad we got to say goodbye to him and to see him smile one last time. I am glad that he even called me by my nickname, 'Bambina' one last time. I am glad to have held his hand one last time. I am glad that he made me laugh one last time. I am glad to have known him.

You are blessed indeed to have had "one last time". The cloud in the sunrise looks like an angel in flight, and from the sound of his life song, I'm sure he is among them.

Sorry for your loss, my friend.

XOXOX

So well said. To me, he gave me hope when I hadn't seen any. He was truly an amazing guy. Wow, he will be greatly missed.

I've heard news of too many grieving hearts these past few weeks. My heart is heavy for all the families and friends of all the recently departed.
