I was told today
        Still can't believe it's true

Wasn't it just yesterday
        that we laughed
                cried
        shared our lives

And now
       in what feels
                less than a moment

You are gone

I watched the stars tonight
        thinking about you
                about our talks
when I caught the flicker
        Of a star off the horizon

Tiny and brilliant
                it flickered in quiet joy

You made it to heaven my friend
        And I will miss you

But your light still shines
                here

In the hearts of those
        who knew you
                Who heard the strings of your soul
                        play the symphony
                                of your compassion

I am glad you are free of the pain, Gary

                ... but you will still be missed

Gary,

You are at peace. But we are all very sad.

God Bless your kind soul...

good thing about flames is that they can be shared. You took your light to a better place but it will remain here too.

thanks for those words

Daniel
