It has been two years since a dear friend of mine finally lost his battle with cancer. Rare is the day that I don’t think about him and the beautiful mark he left on this world.
It has been nearly 20 years since his older brother took his own life, also leaving this world far too soon.
I think the thing that sucks most about getting older is that this list, which I have shared only a small part of, keeps getting longer. While it sucks to lose the ones we love, how blessed are we to have known them here, and to know that we will see them again.
I know with all my heart that the people we love and cherish are on the proverbial “other side” awaiting our reunions with equal excitement. It is not that either of us hope we end this mortal journey early, simply that the love we have for each other extends beyond the bounds of phyisical life, and rests in the deepest parts of our souls.
While it is true that love can be described through Neuro chemical reactions, there is a spiritual dimension that, while we don’t understand it, has a much more lasting affect on our relationships. The joy that we experience with those special people in our lives is something that cannot be explained with words because it is truly beyond our mortal comprehension.
I guess this is just a really long way of saying I miss my friends and family that have already left this mortal world, and I look forward to the day where we will again be reunited.
