    Don't think of him as gone away
    his journey's just begun,
    life holds so many facets
    this earth is only one.

    Just think of him as resting
    from the sorrows and the tears
    in a place of warmth and comfort
    where there are no days and years.

    Think how he must be wishing
    that we could know today
    how nothing but our sadness
    can really pass away.

    And think of him as living
    in the hearts of those he touched...
    for nothing loved is ever lost
    and he was loved so much.

    I wanted to thank you so much for posting this poem. My father had been diagnosed with cancer 2 months ago, and when I saw this poem several days ago, I subscribed to this thread so that I could find this beautiful poem again. My father passed away yesterday, and when I showed this poem to my mother, it moved her so much that she said that she wanted it read at his funeral. Again, thank you for giving us something that brought some comfort to us.

    I have been wanting to post Emily Dickinson's hope is the thing with feathers for Travis' family so here it is!:

    “Hope” is the thing with feathers -
    That perches in the soul -
    And sings the tune without the words -
    And never stops - at all -

    And sweetest - in the Gale - is heard -
    And sore must be the storm -
    That could abash the little Bird
    That kept so many warm -

    I’ve heard it in the chillest land -
    And on the strangest Sea -
    Yet - never - in Extremity,
    It asked a crumb - of me.

    Awe inspiring, attention grabbing...and also polite. Words that remind me of Travis.

    Did you catch the "thanks" at the end?



    He is still crashing parties by the stories people tell from people who were honored enough to know him and also those he never even knew.

    Dear family, he won't be forgotten. The trial will end, the bad will fade and the good we have learned from your strength for your brother and by him will always stay.

    White Feather.

    Last week sometime, I had a dream with a white feather that was very predominant.

    Fast forward to today.... I am walking in the park; I stop dead in my tracks and subconsciously look down at my feet.

    A white feather! I took that as a sign.


    "Feathers are a common form of communication from your angels. If you have prayed to the angels for guidance or for a sign that everything’s going to be okay, be sure to notice feathers, especially white ones. They can appear as tangible objects on the ground or floating from the air. The angels use various means to get your attention and let you know they’re here to help."

    I now have the white feather in my car and I have honoured it in Travis' memory.
