The remarkable journey of life can never be dull or difficult as long as there are sublime vistas and surprises along the way. From your first happy welcome, to our sad, sudden parting, it's been impossible to ignore the unifying thread woven throughout our every shared caper, argument, or silent moment of gladness, and it is this: no one who glides within your orbit will ever be bored, their moment with you will be rich, the absence of you will tug in delicious sorrow. To know you is sublime, to remember you, an act of love.
