    I loved your point that bodies are not who we are. We are spirits drifting, marching, stumbling, flying through this lifetime. My heart reaches out to you and offers a touch of spirit joy.

  10. Tim, I am so sorry for your loss. Over these last months, you have introduced us to Barbara, and it was such a privilege to “meet” her and to see the love you shared. Thank you for sharing this lovely, heartfelt tribute. May so many wonderful memories of your years together comfort you as you move forward. You’re in my thoughts.

    Tim, although I hardly know you, I console you with my condolences, whatever that means. I lost the love of my life in 1995 and personally learned empathy. Your writing is prolific and I appreciate the words you put together under duress. I would wish someone would write about me in just half that manner. Thank you.

  14. “We are not our bodies. People look at us and see our bodies, but that is not who we are. We are spirits traveling around in meat sacks. The spirit is who we are. The meat sack will break down, but the spirit will live on. It takes a special way of looking to see that spirit within most people. With Barbara, it shone through like the noon sun.
    “The world is a darker place because a light has gone out. We will celebrate the light that was her life and we will refuse to curse the darkness.”
    Tim, my heart aches for you and your loss. Thank you for sharing this with us, for your example of openness and love. Peace to you; may Barbara’s spirit and love hold you up now and always.
