I'll be Seeing You, Ronnie

The summer sun is fading as the year grows old
And darker days are drawing near
The winter winds will be much colder
Now that you're not here
.



This stanza is the opening for the Moody Blues song, "Forever Autumn."  I was thinking of autumn this morning, as we buried my brother, Ronald E. Dawson.  I am always grateful that I'm Catholic. Again.  How awful to think that death is the end of life.  


All you have to do is look around at nature to prove otherwise.  The four seasons in nature mirror the four seasons of our human lives.  That's why I was thinking of the Moody Blues' "Forever Autumn."



Réquiem aetérnam dona ei Dómine; et lux perpétua lúce at ei.  Requiéscat in pace.  Amen
