God Be With You, Artie

Saturday, October 23, 2010

Tonight, around 8:20 pm, my beloved brother's soul left us, surrounded by the brilliant glow of a magnificent full moon. I went outside and took enough photos for the both of us. The sky was filled with fast moving fluffy white clouds.

While waiting for the funeral director to arrive, we were remembering another long car many many years ago when my children were young. Artie showed up at our house to show off his splendid new car, and all the kids piled into it for a ride around the block. Artie's new car was a long black hearse. He so loved that car, and even put in a little stove and sleeping bag in the back so he could go camping with it. So I guess tonight it was fitting for him to leave here in a shiny new long black car.

I love you Artie. Rest peacefully. Edna

Miss Edna,

What a beautiful picture with Artie. I got a big smile from your story of his new car and all the kids going for a ride. It's so clear how much he was loved and will be missed. My heart goes out to you, and yours.

"May knowing you're in the hearts and thoughts of others help you and yours through this time of sorrow."

Erik told me last night while I was on the phone with him. The picture of the full mon with Artie's face in the sky is beautiful- he would have loved it.I'm sure he's looking down on you all , it's a new life for him free of pain and suffering- I alway believe it's not the end, but a new start.Love and blessings -Snowy
