Tests

I miss the loves ones I’ve lost.

I recall my mother asking in reference to my youngest sister, now gone these three years: does she miss me like I miss her? Her other question: how big is heaven? Unanswerable.

And now I ask, in reference to my mother, now gone a year: does she miss me like I miss her? My other question: how big is heaven? Still unanswerable.

Death tests the faith of the faithful and the faithlessness of the faithless.

    I heard a voice on the way home from an outdoor adventure.The voice took me back to the late 60’s.I loved that voice then and I must say it is richer today for with in the voice lies the passing of time.I wish you well Susan and if I may a part of me will always remember Miss Susan Crowe of Cow Bay.I am sorry to hear about your mother and sister at times i feel cheated by not what I have said to own Mother but by what I can not say.
    Regardless I was happy to hear the voice yours and if you do not recall me no matter what does matter is that you developed your talent as I knew you could.All the best,Mike O’Brien formerly from Shearwater NS and GCHS.
