Monday, 19 May 2008 - Good memories

Dear God:

Today, I am thankful for good memories.

Our friend and colleague, George, finally succumbed to cancer a few days ago. The news, though expected for some time, saddens our household.

Tears won't bring him back. Still, in the privacy of my studio, I grieve quietly.

I think of George's infectious smile, sparkling eyes, droll sense of humor and unmatched optimism. I remember his insight, intellect and gratitude. I celebrate his dreams and talents.

My "livestrong" scorecard reveals the horrible truth. Cancer wins again. Damn it.

For this blessing, I am grateful.
