    when losing a fine mentor and friend made me feel like crumbling, another friend told me something that helped, it went kind of like this-There is a misbelief that death is an injustice, remember what the caterpillar calls the end, the master calls the butterfly....I must add to that, u can breathe in the love of the lost anytime. know we r thinking of you , Sam & Linda Taylor
