    This news saddens me deeply. My families thoughts and prayers are with you.

    I am the Life and the Light and the Way-
    The earth is my Garden.
    Each of the souls I plant as seeds
    Germinates and flowers in its season,
    And in each I am fulfilled.
    There is no cause for grief
    When a blossom fades
    But only rejoicing for the beauty it held
    And praise that my Will is done
    And my Plan served.
    I am one with all creatures
    and none is ever lost
    But only restored to me,
    Having never left me at all.
    For what is Eternal
    Cannot be separated from its source.
    I am with you all,
    And each of you is a channel for my Light.
    Feel my Love
    Enfold you now and evermore.
