Re: GSBN:Loss

Loving thoughts.... my humble words would be too limited here....

Rememberng a reaction of Joan - one of the Findhorn friends in The Hague ,
who said after her daughter transcended in the Tsunami: she knew her
daughter definitly has been called to another job on a "next cycle".

Love, Martin
