Having learned of the loss of the love of your life, these quotes come to mind:

“When you are sorrowful, look again in your heart, and you shall see that in truth you are weeping for that which has been your delight.” –Kahill Gibran

“What we have once enjoyed and deeply loved we can never lose, for all that we love deeply becomes a part of us.” –Helen Keller

“Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.” –Jesus

May you find comfort in the numerous ways you walked with and stood by Elaine in the joys and challenges of life.

Warmest regards…

Mel Thomas
