Both left us, within a couple of days of one another. It was my mom's time, it wasn't Biz's but both will be missed. Here is a poem from our Temple prayer book that made me cry at services tonight.
  1. It is a fearful thing to love what death can touch.
  2. A fearful thing to love, hope, dream: to be - to be, and oh! to lose.
  3. A thing for fools this, and a holy thing. A holy thing to love.
  4. For your life has lived in me, your laugh once lifted me, your word was gift to me.
  5. To remember this brings a painful joy. 'Tis a human thing, love, a holy thing, to love what death has touched.
  6. Rest in peace MarySusan.
  7. Rest in peace @biz.
