  • "When that which we hold dear and close is taken from us, it breaks our hearts, but it also gives us an opportunity to break open our hearts, letting more love flow than ever before.

    Death asks us to live more fully and love more deeply. To practice our gratitude for every breath and to be more present, kind, and truthful with each other and ourselves"
