Many of us have lost so many loved ones already this year, and it brings with it an occasional melancholy that can also be the doorway to good memories. Today, processing photos from my archives, I ran across this set of images I took at a dear friends home in the White Salmon area. Sharon has passed away but I could feel her delight in nature and photography as I looked at these images of the Buddha statue in her yard. Therefore, I will share these for the first time publicly in memory of Sharon McCormack, and in sincere empathy with all who have lost those we hold close. Strong personal beliefs and experiences have shown me that life continues beyond death as we know it, and our loved ones are not truly lost to us. My brother Dennis (died 1-24-18 age 79), sister Nora (died 12-13-16 age 82) and many others are but a thought and a memory away, and it is my belief I will see them again.
May you each find peace and comfort in remembering the lives of your own loved ones, and feel their love for you eternally.
