To the Richardson Family:
When we lose someone we love, it seems that time stands still. I know for certain that we never lose the people we love, even to death. They continue to participate in every act, thought and decision we make. Their love leaves an indelible imprint in our memories. We find comfort in knowing that our lives have been enriched by having shared their love.
William Wordsworth once wrote, though nothing can bring back the hour of splendor in the grass, of glory in the flower, we will grieve not, rather find strength in what remains behind.
Peace, prayers and blessings in your difficult hours.
Star Love, Susan Douglas Bartlett
