In memory…

To all of you who have sent us well wishes, followed our trip through this blog and continue to read and re-read it, this is our second to last post. Happy to be home but missing the road, we want to remember our two pups Murray and Taylor that didn’t make the trip. In this post we pass on a short reminder that fits not only the loss of these two girls but is a motivator for us to keep moving ahead. It comes from one of our favourite pilots, musicìans and writers….

Grief

Grief is like the wake behind a boat.

Big enough to swamp and drown you –

if you suddenly stop moving forward.

But if you do keep moving –

the big wake will eventually get calm again.

That is when the memories of those who have left,

begin to shine,

As bright and as enduring as the stars above.”

– Jimmy Buffet from ‘A Salty Piece of Land”

Come on down where I can sniff you....!!
