Remembering Ginger

Quotes and Notes #352, October 22

The harvest

“Don’t be ashamed to weep; ‘tis right to grieve. Tears are only water, and flowers, trees, and fruit cannot grow without water. But there must be sunlight also. A wounded heart will heal in time, and when it does, the memory and love of our lost ones is sealed inside to comfort us.”—Brian Jacques, “Taggerung”—

A friend died the other day. She was a caring, smiling friend who shared, not only of her largesse, but of her mind, of her kindness, and of her great store of practical wisdom.

Last night, I was thinking on a question, “When I am gone, will someone remember me and my actions as fondly as I remember Ginger?”—That’s quite a question to ask. It’s quite a question to find an answer for.

All we can do is our best and hope that we leave something behind. All we can do is to remember our departed friends for their good works, beauty, and caring.

I shared many a smile with Ginger Grant. I’m glad.
Everything is going to be all right.

John P. Schulz—“Sweetie Drives on Chemo Days.”

    I’d say the answer is yes, that many, many years from now, when you go on up to the Big House, you will be remembered ever so fondly. And all who remember will share a smile. I’m sorry for your loss.
