Claire's Death

Wrapping My Mind Around...

Saying Goodbye

"Oh mom, I hate to leave you but I must. My time is up and it's as it's meant to be. The timing is perfect- I am getting sicker, faster. Tomorrow morning is perfect.

What a nice life we've had together. Thank you for the life you gave me and the opportunity to be a helper. That was my purpose, as a family and person helper, and now I am complete.

I was reminded of my role as caretaker of the sacred land on this bluff and the metaphor for the constant need for renewal and restoration on many levels, both physical and spiritual.

"I have so much respect for him. The way he played the game. Some guys had to be reminded it is a game and you should have fun playing it. He had fun playing it. He had fun practicing it. He had fun in the locker room, the bus, the airplane."

John Madden

Brett Farve’s official website title is “For the Love of the Game”. It may as well be “For the Love of Life” because this is clearly a person who understands how to get the most out of and enjoy life.
