Who would have thought? That one day, so many years past, February 12 could still drag heavy on the heart.
Here’s to a lightening of that load if you still carry it. Here’s to releasing remaining sorrow. Of what didn’t happen in their lives, in our lives, because they left us.
Here’s to their essence, their joy, their spark. Who they were. The good they left behind. What they did while they were here. Remember it brightly. And carry it forward.
In Memory of Those Aboard Flight 705, February 12, 1963.
