The White Shores

I lost my mother-in-law to cancer in 2003.
I lost my mother to cancer in 2004.
My dad died the year after.

Yesterday we lost Uncle Erasmo...



I read in some German movie review the other day: Leben heisst sterben lernen. Living means learning to die.
I wonder if those lessons ever get us ready for it? I remember the white shores that Gandalf in Lord of Rings talks about...Some people call the white shores heaven, I suppose. I hope to find you there when it's my time to go.
We miss you all terribly!

I'm so sorry for your loss. He's a handsome gentleman.

I hope your tailbone is getting better.

Mein herzliches Beileid. Ich hoffe, Du haeltst die lange Autoreise durch mit Deiner Verletzung.

Alles Liebe
Ulrike
