Today is a hard day.
Today someone admired is gone but not forgotten.
The smile, the hair, the talent.
The Mother, the Sister, the Actress.

The fight was fought with pure determination.
The desire was raw and unflinching.
The hope was strong and unrelenting.
The faith was pure and unfaltering.

Facing, Fighting, Foraging.
You didn’t go quietly into the night.
Bringing about change in a tenuous hour.
With humor and strength and courage.

Your wings will dip into the clouds, the rain, the sun.
Surrounded by family who’ve gone on before you.
Healthy, whole and smiling.
This angel has found a new home.
