There’s a sacredness in tears. They are not the mark of weakness, but of power. They speak more eloquently than ten thousand tongues. They are the messengers of overwhelming grief, of deep contrition, and of unspeakable love.

– Washington Irving

There’s no easy way how to forget the place that your loved ones hold in your heart. You can hold on tight to the memories of how they taught you to laugh, live, and love. Life is not a journey to the grave. It teaches you that your life takes on new meaning when you are enveloped by your loved ones’ companionship, soulfulness, and constant love. It gives you the simple teachings of goodness and compassion.
