Nice Quote

“It is important for families to hold together in the face of loss. They must cling to each other, despite the impulse not to, despite the differences that come welling up at unexpected moments such as these. The tendency over time is for a family to become a puddle, drying in the sun. When what it needs to be is a river, inevitably replenishing. The water rushes in, remains for too brief a span, then rushes away, irretrievable. That is sad. But the river remains, deathless, enduring. A refutation of death, to those who hold fast to it.”
