A death has occurred and everything is changed.

We are painfully aware that life can never be the same.

Yesterday is over.  Relationships once rich have ended.

But there is another way to look upon this truth.

If life went on the same without the presence of the one who has died,

we could only conclude that the life we remember made no contribution,

filled no space, meant nothing.

The fact that this individual left behind a place that cannot be filled

is a high tribute to that person.

Life can be the same after a trinket has been lost, but will

never be the same after the loss of a TREASURE.
