#SOL16: Passing

Rob at home.
Yesterday, March 8th at 4:30 p.m. the world lost a beautiful man. My husband, Rob Cohen, passed in the arms of his son and me.

The world is more grey.

He, however, has found peace that eluded him during his six-month struggle with lung cancer.

I love him more than words can name.

Don't forget to leave some breadcrumbs, Rob...

    1. Silence is never as loud as when the breath finally stops.

  4. I find comfort in this, hope you do too...

    So time, such as it is, shifts
    No less potent and confining
    A dimension yet unfathomed
    The story goes on...and on
    Crumbs as sparkling stars
    Written on the firmament
    Marking a timeless plotline
    The story goes on...and on
