“The natural progress of things is for liberty to yield, and government to gain ground.”
When the Angel of Death approaches you, it is terrible. When it reaches you, it is bliss.
- Sufi proverb
I much prefer this sentiment:Do not go gentle into that good night, Old age should burn and rage at close of day; Rage, rage against the dying of the light.All the best,GB
All I can do from far away is keep you in my thoughts and prayers.
Death is before me todayLike the recovery of a sick man,Like the going forth into a garden after sicknessDeath is before me todayLike the odor of myrrh,Like sitting under a sail on a windy day.Death is before me todayLike the course of the freshet,Like the return of a man from the war-galley to his house.Death is before me todayAs a man longs to see his houseWhen he has spent years in captivity.-- Pyramid texts (ca. 3000BC) You can tell a lot about a culture from how it talks about death.
Time devours all things, except love.
All I can say isbe glad of the times you had,anddon't forget your mom.
I'll keep you in my thoughts Borepatch.

I'm always at a loss for what to say in situations like this, Borepatch. I lost the only member of my family I was ever close to when I was a callow youth; I've been spared further loss since.Just know your friends are here for you. Even hundreds of miles away, trapped in MA...
