This condolence was sent to me in a card. This beautiful man who has been my aunt’s partner for 15 or 20 years wrote it to me.
Surely your brother sowed a hopeful garden for many—in many places.
In the twilight of his days, no greater love must have absorbed than the collective enduring embrace of his family, friends and loved ones.
His gentle essence, resolute being, will venture now with you into that quiet place of unspeakable grief, and again each time you re-enter there.
Quietly, resolutely, gently will he journey….ever loving….ever with you.
Now the soft brush strokes of time begin their patient healing, my heart is with you.
