Death of a Friend

This morning, I will be attending the funeral of a dear family friend who died unexpectedly in a tragic accident last week. In her honor, here are a few selected quotes about the end of life on earth.

“Unable are the loved to die, for Love is immortality.”
– Emily Dickinson

“Good night sweet prince, and flights of angels sing thee to thy rest.”
– William Shakespeare

“Peace, Peace!
He is not dead,
he doth not sleep –
He hath awakened from the dream of life.”
– Percy Bysshe Shelley

“Think of stepping on shore
    and finding it heaven!
Of taking hold of a hand
    and finding it God’s,
Of breathing new air,
    and finding it celestial air,
Of feeling invigorated,
    and finding immortality,
Of passing from storm and tempest
    to an unbroken calm,
Of waking up,
    and finding it Home!”
– Anonymous

May God bless and keep you, Mrs. Laulis.
