Memories of our pasts are at times best held in the glorious light we had them shine in to make it easier to handle the cruelty of reality. As friends and family age, it places a heaviness on the heart seeing those we cherish in a different place but it seems that at times this is the reality is life. For those who can accept the transitions without the pain it may make us stronger but it truly does impact us a heavy heart.
