When we lose someone through death it is very painful for most of us. I remember losing my friend David who had become my very best friend. Whenever David would call we had more laughs. And when I lost him to death it was very hard and I cannot say that I have ever had a friend like David since. I think because our friendship was one of generosity and we were not possessive or jealous. Our friendship and love will last into eternity. The following selection of music will bring you much joy in trusting that the love that we have known with a friend, spouse or loved one is very much present and all around us. I invite you to listen to this masterfully written piece of music and allow yourself to enter into a moment in eternity with that special person who is only a breath away.
