Pedro Lives On

Pedro was a 97 year old man from Cuba who was always at the Senior Center where my wife goes.

She really liked him and would often talk with him.

He was funny, upbeat, and filled with life, dancing even into his late 90’s.

He died. That day our grandfather clock stopped. The grandfather clock had been running continuously for over a year. A few days later, when I opened it to see what had happened, I saw the chime mechanism was incredibly stuck. I needed a force of about 5 pounds to unstick it. This had never happened before.

Losing a Loved One

Someone came to me the other day
About losing a loved one
I have sat with a lot of people who have lost loved ones
Dying is a part of life
We just can’t control it is something that happens to all of us
There is no escape
Our exiting is going to be when we pass
When someone passes often we get stuck and we can be very immobilize because
we are just so torn up inside with grief hurt and anger
Thinking God doesn’t exist
Where are they
How do we function and go on
And the thing about it is
