Faith, hope, and loss

Drawing by BZTAT

Twice this week, I have read the shattering news, crossing my Facebook page, of the untimely loss of a friend.

It is an awkward space to be sharing grief – writing on a friend’s Facebook page when that person’s eyes will not read it. But that is becoming the new process of sharing grief with others who feel the same sadness and loss.

And it has beauty.

Friends gather to share stories and comfort each other. They mobilize to garner support for the children who are most closely affected. And they share spirit through prayer and virtual hugs.

I share my heart and my spirit here, in hopes that it will reach those who grieve, and reach those who have joined wings with the angels.

I miss ya, guys. You are forever in my heart.
