I wish nothing more than if I could tell my sister how much I loved her and that I always idolized her, but we never said those things. We just weren't like that. Then suddenly one day she's gone. And I have all these things to say, but no one to say them to.”

Start with God as the infinite universe, and imagine that force may be trying desperately to guide you through the most challenging part of your life.”
    Alexander Chaplin - Rabbi Rosenberg
