|I've been to about six funerals in the last two years none for whom I personally knew particularly well but I've seen how completely torn apart people can get over the death of someone close to them... so in saying that--I'm not going to tell you that I know how you feel because I couldn't possibly but I will tell you that you are so very courageous in the expression of your loss... and for that I commend you. :) This is gorgeous!

|Adam, this is one of the most beautifully written tributes I've ever read. I can only offer the tears that stream down my face after reading this, and I look across the driveway to a house of emptied rooms... There are degrees of loss, mine is small, yours and Katy's, acute. My loss is my neighbor's future, your loss is your future, combined, we mourn the emptiness of every room's life bereft of possibilities. Strength is relative, it surrounds you in the faces of your family, in the shape of your mind, accept what you can, mourn what you can't, live, for Tammy and yourself. We are all rooms waiting to be filled, perhaps loss is part of that filling.|

|Dearest Adam/Son: I knew it would be therapeutic to write something for Tammy's passing.. your dear aunt, my sweet sister. I felt her there, too. Your poem is perfect.. something to relate to and to offer understanding.. but it's also a wonderful poem on its own. I'm so glad you expressed this. Thank you. love, mom/katy xox.|

|I went to a funeral not so long ago of one my best friends.. She was forty with a ten year old son.. At her wake..I could feel her in the room.. Not a doubt in my mind she was near.. could almost touch her.. I stood in the back of the room as her son brought every new comer to his mothers casket to show them how pretty she looked.. but each time he cried.. Mommy wake up... My heart was breaking for him and for his mother who I knew could see tyhis.. I wished deperatly I could reach into my soul and give it him.. just for that day,, so he could feel her near him also.. but that is not the way it works.. Great write.. Really made me think.|

|This so reminds me of Nanny's wake. Especially when Chubby came up to me (one of my Aunts, who now has Alzheimer's) and we remembered some of the good times. Beautiful write hon. That last stanza is just so very awesome!!! Granted, yeah got me sniffling this morning. *hugglies*
Love & Light

|Adam..this is the most perfect tribute,(to one that has passed over,) that I have ever read..
I feel you all around me now
I know others feel the same
You live now as never before
Eternal life is your rightful claim
...how true that is..how true...
