I know for certain that we never lose the people we love, even to death. They continue to participate in every act, thought, and decision we make. Their love leave an indelible imprint in our memories. We find comfort in knowing that our lives have been enriched by having shared their love. My deepest sympathy to you Carson, and Kevin and Darrell and family.
