Wordless Wednesday: Remembering Craig with Love

From July 27, 2011

Have ten years passed since my dear friend Craig Lundwall opted out of this world that would not love him for who he was?

Ten years have passed and then some.  August 2  would be his 45th birthday. How better a place this would be if Craig were here. He could make us laugh and feel good and laugh and feel good again.

Be kind to everyone around you. Make them smile. Love them. Beautiful people perish without that kind of love.

Please.  Be the anchor that holds.

  11. Craig sounds a bit like my brother, Mike, who was hilariously funny, but had emotional scars from being verbally abused all his life by my father. Mike ended his life in 1986 when he was 36. He had never dealt with his painful childhood, just covered it up with a sardonic wit.

    What a special tribute of memory and love ~~ I wish those who opt out of life, could realize that is not the answer ... reaching out to someone to hold their honor close to their heart is a better move ...

  16. Here's hoping, that wherever in the universe he is, he can see that you still remember him. That's a kind of love too.

  17. Very moving post. I am so sorry that you lost your friend. Your thoughtful words in his memory mean a lot to me right now, too - I lost a friend who opted out of the world this past May. Sending you good thoughts.

  19. Ten years, a big year emotionally for his family then. My post today is also in memory of someone. Wordless Wednesdays give us that time to be quiet and remember.
