Dedicated to the dear friend of my sister whose sweet, beautiful, six year old son Benjamin was among those killed in the Friday school shooting in Connecticut.....

"Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, love leaves a memory no one can steal." ~Author Unknown

 "A Thousand Words Can't Bring You Back, I Know Because I Tried And Neither Can a Million Tears I Know Because I Cried." ~Author Unknown

"The light of a distant star continues to reach the Earth long after the star itself is gone." ~Author Unknown

 "They say that time in heaven is compared to 'the blink of an eye' for us on this earth. Sometimes it helps me to think of my child running ahead of me through a beautiful field of wildflowers and butterflies; so happy and completely caught up in what she is doing that when she looks behind her, I'll already be there." ~Author Unknown

"When someone you love becomes a memory, the memory becomes a treasure." ~Author Unknown

"When you are sorrowful look again in your heart, and you shall see that in truth you are weeping for that which has been your delight." ~Kahlil Gibran

 "The deep pain that is felt at the death of every friendly soul arises from the feeling that there is in every individual something
which is inexpressible, peculiar to him alone, and is, therefore,
absolutely and irretrievably lost." ~Arthur Schopenhauer

 "Angels come to visit us, and we only know them when they are gone." ~Author Unknown

"Breathe. Listen for my footfall in your heart. I am not gone but merely walk within you." ~Nicholas Evans

"And if I go while you’re still here… know that I live on, vibrating to a different measure behind a thin veil you cannot see through. You will not see me so you must have faith. I wait the time when we can soar again, both aware of each other. Until then, live your life to its fullest, and when you need me just whisper my name in your heart…I will be there." ~Author Unknown




















Rest in peace, Benjamin....
