    “When I find myself filling with rage over the loss of a beloved, I try as soon as possible to remember that my concerns and questions should be focused on what I learned or what I have yet to learn from my departed love. What legacy was left which can help me in the art of living a good life?
    Did I learn to be kinder,
    To be more patient,
    And more generous,
    More loving,
    More ready to laugh,
    And more easy to accept honest tears?
    If I accept those legacies of my departed beloveds, I am able to say, Thank You to them for their love and Thank You to God for their lives.”
