Walking into the Light

The Pathway of Light



Dear friends, last night quite suddenly my last
remaining brother walked into the light.

Since I cannot fly, the drive to his funeral will be long
and weary and I will be away for a little more than
two weeks. Internet possibilities will at best be intermittent,
so my normal posting and visiting will be on hold.

He has gone somewhere over the rainbow to be with his
parents and brother and sister......may blessed peace envelop
them all now.


Though we pass from the present, our love remains behind.

  6. "Your dreams, as well as the obstacles placed on your path, are gifts given you so that you might sooner see this Light that now surrounds you. Of these gifts, my parting was one. You need not be sad, for even now I am with you - though you must close your eyes to see me."
    -note from the universe-
    I am so sorry for your hurting heart.
    May angels carry you in their arms during this time.

  12. I am truly saddened to hear that. But at the same time, it's comforting to know he is in a place where angels sing and where the lion and the lambs play together.

    Peace to you and the famiy at this time.
