Thank for your kind words, everyone who wrote in about dear Clifford. You are all so beautiful and sweet. And all of us, it seems, have been there.
I want to especially thank Jill Seeger Salahub, for drawing my attention to this excerpt from the beautiful Mary Oliver poem, "In Blackwater Woods", which tells us everything we need to know about death, as only Mary Oliver can.
Love to you all, and blessings to your warm, generous hearts…
