S is for Souls

Me, alone. Life after loss.

One day, our souls will dance together into eternity.
~ This quote is by me.

To honor Errol's Creole heritage, and quite frankly, to also help me through it all, I hired a New Orleans traditional jazz band for his funeral. After the coffin was placed in the crypt, the band changed to the happy send off tunes. 

As family and friends did the second line, I walked over to the now closed crypt and whispered, "some day our souls will dance together into eternity." 

I don't know where it came from, but it has since become a great comfort to me. 

A year ago, April 22, 2015, I held his hand as he passed away at 2:33 in the afternoon........
