'When times like this happen you look to your beliefs and faith and you remember that
the best part of him is safe and sound all around you and you take comfort from that.

"There will come a day when the tears of sorrow will softly flow into tears of remembrance...and your heart will begin to heal itself...and grieving will be interrupted by episodes of joy...and you will hear the whisper of hope. There will come a day when you will welcome the tears of remembrance...as a sun shower of the soul...a turning of the tide...a promise of peace. There will come a day when you will...risk loving...go on believing...and treasure the tears of remembering."
