The memorial is really beautiful and you did a wonderful job with the cranes. I'm very sorry to hear about your loss.

I'm sorry for your loss.

There are strands of 1,000 cranes like this hanging in the peace park in Nagasaki, Japan as a memorial for those who died in the atomic bomb, so your tribute to Simon is very much in the spirit of the tradition.

Very beautiful and touching.

That is both heart breaking and beautiful. I must give my respect to anyone level headed enough to keep calm and not react with rage and burn them all, I know I would have done something similar to burning them in my rage. This was a much better idea for them I think Smiley

This is one of the most touching things I have heard.  I am sorry for your loss and it takes a lot of courage and strength to find a healing and amazing way to deal with a loss.  Your light is truly beautiful in every way.
