  10. CandleImageThe pain of losing those we love can be almost too much to bear,
    but if your sorrow is a measure of how much you meant to each other,
    then there is a rightness to the depth of your grief
    and a sure knowledge that one day you will see her again and exchange
    sorrow for Joy.
