Unfortunately two other employees of the bank lost their father’s this year, so I wanted to share this poem as my blog.
A death has occurred and everything is changed by this event.
We are painfully aware that life can never be the same again
That yesterday is over, that relationships, once rich, have ended
But there is another way to look upon this truth.
If life went on the same without the presence of the one who has died,
We could only conclude that the life we here remember made no contribution,
Filled no space, meant nothing.
The fact that this individual left behind a place that cannot be filled is a high
Tribute to this individual.
Life can be the same after a trinket has been lost, but NEVER after the loss of a treasure.
So, just a reminder, please cherish your treasures.
