My friend Laurie’s mother passed away today, and since I cannot console her in person at this time, I wrote this poem for her. I hope it serves to show her that while I cannot fully understand how she feels right now, I am trying my best to imagine it, which is one way that I can seek to understand her pain. As I told Laurie on Facebook: “I may not be a religious man, but I believe in Heaven and I believe that you have a new Guardian Angel who will always be watching over you.”

Rest In Peace
