seasons of life
spring new life
may our loved ones who have passed on
blossom into happy peaceful lives again
for their contributions to our lives
may their lights burn brightly in our souls
honored in our thoughts and actions
in honor of Aunt Yvonne

Awakening and surrender: they frame each day and each life; between them the journey where anything can happen, the beauty and the frailty.”
—John O’Donohue, “Beauty, the Invisible Embrace”
