No words can ease your pain, Linda, but these words by e e cummings reminds us that our loved ones are always with us. Diane will always be with you in your heart. As I share these lines with you, please know that you and your family have my deepest sympathy and my heart hurts for all of you. Thinking of you at this time of sorrow.
"Here is the deepest secret nobody knows.
Here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
And the sky of the sky of a tree called life; which grows
Higher than soul can hope or mind can hide
And this is the wonder that's keeping the stars apart...
I carry your heart(I carry it in my heart)."~ e e cummings.
