    We think of Life as a beginning
    and it is.
    It is the beginning of the hope, of faith.
    Grieve not for the spirit lives on.

    We think of Death as an ending
    and it is.
    It is the ending of physical life on earth.
    Grieve not for the spirit lives on.

    We think forever is forever
    and it is.
    It is all the tomorrows whispered into the wind.
    Grieve not for the spirit lives on.

    We think letting go is easy
    but it isn?t.
    It is memories of our loved ones etched in stone
    and planted in the garden of our heart.
    Grieve not for the spirit lives on.

    Grieve not for those who are no longer with us,
    but celebrate that they lived.

    Life is a gift and memories are a blessing.
    Our exsistance on this earth is only for an instant.
    Grieve not for the spirit lives on.

    With my Deepest Sympathies and prayers. Peace & Blessings

    I am so sorry to hear about Fred. He was a truely a great person to treat. I loved to verbally spar with him (he always came with a zinger for me) and I always looked forward to seeing him when he would come in for his treatments. I know he would give you a hard time about a lot of things but he once told me he just wanted to keep you on your toes. We had some wonderful conversations and a lot of good laughter.
    He brought the card you had given him, for your anniversary I think it was, and he told me that he appreciated the sentiments expressed in the card a great deal. He said that he would never tell you that because he didn’t want you to think he was mushy. He truely loved that card. Told me he planned to hang onto it for a long time. He loved you a lot.
    I will miss his humor. He is one of the patients that I will always remember in my nursing career as showing me to approach everything with a sense of humor. He will be missed.
    God bless…
