If we love, then we grieve.
That’s the deal. That’s the pact
We make with the creator.
Grief and love are forever intertwined.
Grief is the terrible reminder
Of the depths of our love and, like love,
Grief is non-negotiable.
The presence of James is with us, and with
Our grief, I invite us to celebrate.
