    through other family members ask about him how he lived
    and through a mental vision write of his life , his love and his eternal peace

    i will place this in the book-writting-discussion forum and maybe a few poets
    can even give you a few lines

    I'll place a line or two that you can feed off of.....U can do it relax
    peace unto u and family and in my prayers

    maybe you can work off this and complete it to your likings

    In absolute stilliness of primordial space
    divine love erupted in God's humble grace
    mere mortal to immortal I rise , I rise to
    my brilliant final resting place on the wings
    of angels to trace as i rise from earth to heaven.

    IMHO...I think you already got this one gurl

    There has been a loss here...did you really have to know him well enuff to acknowledge dat?

    every thought you have

    every thing that comes to mind...


    every question...take it and work from there

    I am very confident in your skillz mi hermana

    You have a gift.

    Dont let the circumstances frazzle you

    speak from your heart with the wisdom you have been graced with from our ancestors

    Remember the words you are sharing dont have to speak to your uncle necessarily

    these are messages those left behind will have to cherish...:read:

    do da dayum thing sista :) :read: :)

    looking forward to what you come up with :)

    Sorry to hear of your loss. I have always been in awe of those who knew loved ones well and could write a poem and read it during the funeral, I was always too emotional for it. Perhaps those that did know him well can write some thoughts about him, and then you can combine all those thoughts together to compose a poem? It will all work out sista, peace to you.
