Grief is the price we pay for Love - Queen Elizabeth II

Tim, I never had the opportunity to meet Sandra and feel a sense of extreme loss and missed opportunity because I saw her through your love. That love for her and your family always seemed to show. This quote reminded me it was not the grief I was seeing or feeling … it was the Love. The past several months it showed in your face, the words said and never said, your actions. Your extended family at Dana has Sandra, John, Caroline, and you in our thoughts and prayers today and for the months to come as well. At times like this I would wonder why … I hug my wife, my children, my friends.

(Will Smith) in Collateral Beauty said, Life is about people. At the end of the day, “We’re here to connect ... Love. Time. Death. Now these three abstractions connect every single human being on Earth. Everything that we covet, everything that we fear not having, everything that we ultimately end up buying is because at the end of the day we long for love, we wish we had more time, and we fear death. "
