Quotes About Family Who Have Died

Favorite foods and books, colors and activities, pets and games. She gets a room ready for him, or her, near people who she knows theyll enjoy being with, maybe other friends and family who have died before.

He didn't need to, of course, for in that future he had no sons, only a daughter, Viola, something which would be a sadness for him although he never spoke of it, certainly not to Viola, who would have been volubly affronted.
