Tribe member, Christopher Ramirez   (I’M CHRISTIAN) sent me this last week.  

I found this article on Yahoo News the other day.  It is such a great story of how our acts of remembering/celebrating the ones who have left this world are seen by and impact others. 
I thought it was such a sweet gesture from a total stranger.

Mum Stunned to Find Poem From Stranger Tacked to Memorial for Her Daughter

Rebecca Green (1983-1996)
Sharon “Mum” Green and daughter Emma

Thank you, Chris, for this share.  The waves and ripples from the loss of someone we deeply love travels farther than we can imagine and affects others-even those we’d consider total strangers-in myriad of ways.   This is an excellent lesson and reminder we are NEVER alone with our grief.  

Peter Fearnley

The poet is a Brit, Pete Fearnley, who is also a singer-songwriter.  Here’s a link to Pete singing his heartfelt tribute to Rebecca Green.  I hear some early Lennon-McCartney.
