Sunday Kipling (RIP Allison)

My cousins daughter passed away on December 26th in Sanger Texas. She was just 24 years old.
Sunday Kipling is dedicated John, Cindy and most especially to Allison who has taken the road before her parents, something no one should have to endure.
Lord please bless and comfort them and take Allison into your loving embrace.

May this not be a portent of the year to come.

The Glories

In Faiths and Food and Books and Friends
Give every soul her choice.
For such as follow divers ends
In divers lights rejoice.

There is a glory of the Sun
('Pity it passeth soon!)
But those whose work is nearer done
Look, rather, towards the Moon.

There is a glory of the Moon
When the hot hours have run;
But such as have not touched their noon
Give worship to the Sun.

There is a glory of the Stars,
Perfect on stilly ways;
But such as follow present wars
Pursue the Comet's blaze.

There is a glory in all things;
But each must find his own,
Sufficient for his reckonings,
Which is to him alone.

Six, I'm so sorry for your loss. It must have been a shock. And I wish I had better words of condolence. I don't think I do.

I shall tell you a great secret my friend. Do not wait for the last judgment, it takes place every day. - Almert Camus

Thanks BP. It was indeed. Maybe the hardest part is she was their only child and miscarried her first child only two weeks before. The whole thing has just been a hammer blow.

Camus was right.
