The candle of life has been extinguished for my friend Terri.
She fought illness for a long time. Last year she lost one of her daughters in an accident. She seemed to just give up after that. There was no more fight in her. Yesterday, she left this earth, just three days shy of a year of losing her child. My sadness in losing her friendship is made easier with the knowledge she can now be with her lost child. Somehow, I envy her. May your spirit be carried on the wings of the raven, Ninnie, to a destination where there is no sorrow, no pain, only happiness. I treasured your friendship.
