    Default QUOTE HELP PLEASE? "those who choose to share their lives..."

    My dear departed Crash's litter sister crossed the bridge yesterday at the age of 16 years, 2 months, 2 days. I'm looking for a quote I've seen here a few times. It starts with something along the lines of "People who choose to share their lives with those whose lives are so short..."

    Can anyone point me toward it? Thanks. My friend is so sad.

    "We who choose to surround ourselves
    with lives even more temporary than our own
    live within a fragile circle, easily and often breached.
    Unable to accept its awful gaps,
    we still would live no other way.
    We cherish memory as the only certain immortality,
    never fully understanding the necessary plan."

    by Irving Townsend, in The Once Again Prince

    One of my own favorites

    Oh, thank you so much, Casey09. I weep for all of those cherished souls already passed at every reading. Somehow the words are still a comfort.
