And the smile that is worth the praises of earth
is the smile that shines through tears.
~ Ella Wheeler Wilcox.
So, my cousin’s husband was killed last week in a car accident. A terrible reason for family to gather, but in the gathering is healing, and in the healing, a reaffirmation of life. Though I mainly saw him at family things here and there, I will forever be grateful for his irrepressible spirit, his infectious laughter, and his razor wit. Godspeed, John O.
