Isaac Waite Ball

In memory of Rona: sunrise: Sept. 1, 1969 ” sunset: Jan. 15, 2004

I believe when someone you love passes away,

a little bit of his or her soul wraps around your soul.

Soon you find yourself wearing their favorite color, adding their favorite words to your vocabulary, and sometimes they may visit you in your dreams.

I believe this is how our loved ones continue to live on, long after they have left our side.

” Shannon Blizard
