: : : Until now, I had never seen this quote, but I have ALWAYS believed it, and have relived it many times at the passing of friends, relatives, and mentors. It has become a ritual, so to speak, at the funerals I attend to say a prayer of thanks to the deceased for what they have given me...for being a part of MY life. I hope that when the time comes, I, too, will be remembered in this way.....

: I also have to thank you for this quote. In dealing with the terrible loss of my mom and also way too many family friends and acquaintances recently, I have learned to take this type of sentiment to heart. How concise and wonderful it is...the circle of life goes on when we carry on the memories and gifts our loved ones have given to us.

I am sorry to hear that you have been suffering such terrible losses recently. I am glad that you are finding some solace in these words. Some people have a gift when it comes to expressing sentiments with which we identify, and we have to thank God for them. I can't count the number of times when I have received comfort from the ability of another to express what I cannot.
