We come together today to mourn those who are gone from us. They cannot be brought back, but they will never be forgotten.
While the issue is complex, I know it is something many more fear, whose loved ones are not gone, but might become gone; and if this is you, or someone else you know, I invite you to consider reading a post I wrote on the topic last June. It may have no application, or it might.
My heart goes out to the families and friends of those we have lost.
