This last storm didn’t come to disrupt your life It came to clear your path Even in your darkest moment and final days You managed to teach me even bigger lessons about moving on from impact to renewal through humility and compassion. What a beautiful parting gift. I love you and respect you for that. Safe journey brother. Go well and peace be with you, my Guru ji Your sister, Tina Mose
