    Dear Karenanne, I offer this blessing for you in the hopes it will console you in your loss.

    “May the blessing of light be on you, light without and light within.

    May the blessed sunlight shine upon you and warm your heart till it glows,
    Like a great peat fire, so that the stranger may come
    and warm himself at it, as well as the friend.

    And may the light shine out of the eyes of you,
    like a candle set in the windows of a house,
    Bidding the wanderer to come in out of the storm.

    And may the blessing of the rain be on you - the soft sweet rain.
    May it fall upon your spirit so that all the little flowers may spring up,
    And shed their sweetness on the air.

    And may the blessing of the great rains be on you,
    that they beat upon your spirit and wash it fair and clean,
    and leave there many a shining pool, and sometimes a star.

    And may the blessing of the earth be on you - the great round earth;
    May you ever have a kindly greeting for people you pass
    as you are going along the roads.

    And now may the Lord bless you, and bless you kindly.”

    with deepest sorrow and hopes for your recovery from this darkness ....
