Pray for a Cure~

The earth has one less beautiful soul and man as of today~

I was looking at what to post today and had just recently photographed the newly bloomed Daff and had no idea that they are also the symbol for cancer research, very fitting for today while I just learned our sweet friend and neighbor passed today. We will never forget you and each year the daffs will remind us of the short joy you brought to us as friends and neighbors. I have always had a strange and wonderful relationship with daffs and now I have one more reason to be happy when I see them.

Daffodils have the flower meaning of rebirth, respect, regard and unrequited love. The daffodil is one of the first flowers of spring, therefore it is a symbol of rebirth.

May you and your family find peace and rest. We are all a lot better off knowing that you'll be above watching over us. As I told you, you'll make a great Angel to watch over your family and friends. Rest in Peace and may you plant a beautiful garden with lots of fruit trees to run through and fresh fruits to pick. My memories will be of you as a happy vibrant man who loved. The last time the kids were up they played in the trees and climbed all day. I have a photo you snapped of them playing....please plant more. We will miss you dearly.

  1. Oh Lori, I am so sorry. Losing people who we love and care for is so very difficult. My thoughts are with you today.

  2. my thoughts are with you too. Take care

  3. Thanks, Ladies
    It was not a family member, but a dear sweet kind man and a friend and neighbor to our family. My only neighbor at the top of my hill:( Thinking of what to post today and remembered I had taken some floral photos and when I looked up the meaning it was perfect. I had no idea that the Daff was also a symbol used for Cancer research. Perfect!
    Wishing I could erase the pain and grief for his family today. :(

  4. Lori, I'm sorry to hear about your dear neighbor. Thanks for the insight of daffodils, makes them even more perfect for my parents too. Hugs!
