Goodbye.

Tuesday, November 16, 2004
Saying goodbye to a person is a deeply personal thing. Everyone says their final farewells in their own way, inflected by an emotional landscape often more specific to the person letting go than the person mourned. That does not dimish the act; letting go is a process for living, even when inescapably wrapped in respecting and feeling the absence of the lost. Even if the person lost was not an integral part of one's life, the loss can be profound, especially when seeing that loss so heavily inscribed onto those remaining.

If nothing else, I respect the person who was and feel for those whose loss is far, far greater and more intense than mine.

That said, Paul left some important words behind which will always remain.
