I changed my signature...

On my emails, since just after Rich died, I've had two quotes.

"'But what about when we're dead and gone,
would you love me then, does love go on?'

Large held Small snug as they looked out at the night,
At the moon in the dark and the stars shining bright.
'Small, look at the stars - how they shine and glow,
but some of those stars died a long time ago.
Still they shine in the evening skies
Love, like starlight, never dies.'"

Debi Gilori "No Matter What"
We may be a thousand miles apart
But I'll be with you wherever you are

Lonestar - I'm already there.
The first is from Debi Gilori's book "No matter what",  which is a children's book about love.  The second is from Lonestar's song, "I'm already there." (Troop tribute version here, tissues at the ready - we played this at Rich's Celebration as the pictures came up. He and I played it whilst he was serving In The Abroad.

And now I've changed them. Today was the right day for it.

"Promise me you'll always remember: You're braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think." ~Christopher Robin to Pooh

I trace the rainbow through the rain,
And feel the promise is not vain,
That morn shall tearless be.

Love that wilt not let me go - George Mattheson

But I've reduced myself to tears and snot with the Lonestar song, so I'll be back laters.
