rest in sorrow; yes on occasion, but not for long or its annoying. minister eachother in all pain..or watch it and pretend its a bear and poke it as hard as you can with whatever object you find with a point? interestingly enough the reason matters. what i am sad about is what will determine my amount of sympathy, even the length of time sympathy will be given. to be one with eachother in silent unspeakable memores at moment of last goodbye; yes.
