my Mother, My Friend

may day, may day


Onyx lost her
Brother
in May.
Those closest to him decided Not to post any meaningful words in his Obituary.
So his entire life is summed up by the tiny dash
(     -     )
between his birth and his death.


This breaks my heart.
He meant something to more people
 than just me,
i know.

i will write more about him someday,
perhaps Onyx will,
but right now
 thinking about him makes me
cry.

His name was

Richard

He was

a Son


a Brother


a Veteran


(      -      )


God Speed

Uncle

Oh Kare I am so sorry. I see just a date of birth and one of death on so many graves, and they do have more than that to tell about their life.. I hope you share, as you are able.. Great people deserve to be remembered.. Blessings and love sent your way., xxxx

I'm so far behind on reading blogs. So sorry about your uncle. I would love to hear you share about him some day.
