A prayer for our friend…
Give all of us gathered here the strength to remember that life is so very fragile.
We are all vulnerable.
And we will all in some point in our lives, fall.
We will all fall.
We must carry this in our hearts– that what we have is special–
that it can be taken from us, and when it is taken from us, we will be tested.
We will be tested to our very souls.
We will now all be tested.
It is these times, it is this pain– that allows us to look inside ourselves.
