For Hope, and for Chris, with love, always x 

Here’s what I know;

💜 Life is short. Sometimes brutally so. However long it is, it is never long enough for the people who love us. 

💜 Death isn’t only the end of a life; for those of us still living it becomes part of our lives. 

💜 People mourn in different ways and it can bring out the best and the worst in us. 

💜 The death of someone we love HURTS. 


💜 The amount of time we spend with someone does not always equal the size of the hole they leave in our hearts. 

💜 Life goes on. It just does. 

💜 Some things in life are important. Some are not. One list is much longer than the other. Work out what is on your ‘Important things’ list. Prioritise. 

💜 What if’s don’t change what is. 

💜 Sometimes you have perfect days or perfect hours or perfect moments. Savour them. Hold onto them. 

💜 Love isn’t all we need but it is what counts. It is the best we can hope to leave behind and it is how we endure. 

When All That’s Left Is Love 

By Rabbi Allen S. Maller 

When I die 

If you need to weep

Cry for someone  

Walking the street beside you.

You can love me most by letting

Hands touch hands, and Souls touch souls.

You can love me most by

Sharing your Simchas (goodness) and

Multiplying your Mitzvot (acts of kindness).

You can love me most by

Letting me live in your eyes

And not on your mind.

And when you say Kaddish for me

Remember what our

Torah teaches,

Love doesn’t die People do.

So when all that’s left of me is love

Give me away.


Safe onward travel x
