Dear Kathy & Rick, Mr. Lynch, and the Lynch families: As I watch the unexpected snowfall this morning, I thought how even more difficult this day would be for you to say good-bye. Then, I watched the "beauty" of the snowfall, and couldn't help but think it was a "Sign from Above". I googled the spiritual meaning of snow, and felt there was a true meaning for me to find this: "The mystique of snow is precisely because of its dual quality of Heaven meeting Earth, water meeting land. Next time you look at the snowflakes gently dropping from Heaven, blanketing Earth in its white embrace, remember that you are witnessing a Kiss - the Kiss of the Devine and the Mundane". If you have a moment some time later today or during the weekend, go outside together, dressed in your snow gear, and throw yourselves in the snow, making Snow Angels! I will do this today in memory of Joan. With Love, Cousin Deb & Family XOX.
