The hospital. The veterinarian’s office. The cemetery.
When we enter into places with loved ones, and we leave those places without them, we know that something’s missing. We leave feeling alone.
Our body, numb. Our mind, simultaneously filled and blank.
When we say goodbye to a physical body for the last time, it feels impossible.
And yet our heart sees what the eyes cannot.
While those dear to us are no longer visible to the seeing world, they are there inside our hearts, and visible in all the ways that we honor their memory.
