You have a wonderful way with words, and those in this post resonate with me. Thank you for articulating your thoughts with inspirational clarity.

For me, it's my grandmother and my friend who passed on too soon, who seem closest to me through the thin veil that separates us from the eternal Communion of Saints.

"The strength and endurance of their love" is indeed "enough of a light to help dispel the darkness of disbelief."

As a new follower I look forward to reading more of your words!
