What moves through us is a silence, a quiet sadness, a longing for one more day, one more word, one more memory. We may not understand you left before we were ready to say good-bye, but little by little, we begin to remember not just that you went to that next plain, but that you lived and your life gave us memories too beautiful to forget. It was an honor to have met you and I will certainly remember you each day. I have met very few genuine people in my life; you are indeed one of those people.
