  21. Dear Madi & Mom,

    With deepest sympathy for the loss of your Grandpa. Here is a poem that someone sent me when I lost my Mom, and I found it comforting. I hope it helps you, too. You are in my thoughts and prayers.


    WHEN TOMORROW STARTS WITHOUT ME
    BY DAVID M. ROMANO

    WHEN TOMORROW STARTS WITHOUT ME
    AND I’M NOT THERE TO SEE
    IF THE SUN SHOULD RISE AND FIND YOUR EYES
    ALL FILLED WITH TEARS FOR ME

    I WISH SO MUCH YOU WOULDN’T CRY
    THE WAY YOU DID TODAY
    WHILE THINKING OF THE MANY THINGS
    YOU DIDN’T GET TO SAY.

    I REMEMBER ALL THE YESTERDAYS,
    THE GOOD ONES AND THE BAD.
    I REMEMBER ALL THE LOVE WE SHARED,
    AND ALL THE FUN WE HAD.

    IF I COULD RELIVE YESTERDAY
    JUST EVEN FOR AWHILE,
    I’D SAY GOODBYE AND KISS YOU
    AND MAYBE SEE YOU SMILE.

    I KNOW HOW MUCH YOU LOVE ME;
    AS MUCH AS I LOVE YOU.
    AND EACH TIME THAT YOU THINK OF ME,
    I KNOW YOU MISS ME TOO.

    BUT WHEN TOMORROW STARTS WITHOUT ME
    PLEASE TRY TO UNDERSTAND,
    THAT AN ANGEL CAME AND CALLED MY NAME,
    AND TOOK ME BY THE HAND.
    AND SAID MY PLACE WAS READY
    IN HEAVEN, FAR ABOVE,
    AND THAT I’D HAVE TO LEAVE BEHIND
    ALL THOSE I DEARLY LOVE.

    SO WHEN TOMORROW STARTS WITHOUT ME,
    DON’T THINK WE’RE FAR APART.
    FOR EVERY TIME YOU THINK OF ME,
    I’M RIGHT HERE, IN YOUR HEART.

    Jack's friend,
    Nancy

  29. Very good blog! Do you have any hints for aspiring
    writers? I'm planning to start my own blog soon but I'm a
    little lost on everything. Would you suggest starting with a free platform like Wordpress or go for a paid
    option? There are so many options out there
    that I'm totally overwhelmed .. Any suggestions? Thanks!
