Chigal’s Kissing a Fool… Jali – April 1, 2005 – November 2, 2018
The evening skies have welcomed a very bright new star. We were so very fortunate to have Jali in our home and hearts from the time she was 6 years old. Thank you so much to Lisa Wright for sharing Jali with us. She was such a special spirit, watching over us, just as her mother, Rainey, and her grandmother, Audi, had done before her. No matter how long we have these golden lights in our lives, it is never ever long enough. Jali left us to be amongst the brightest of stars and the bluest of skies, with no decisions to make. She left her way, quietly and surrounded by love. Learning to lose is the hardest lesson of all a lesson I don’t that that we ever completely learn to master. Instead, we learn to live with our loss, and, as Irving Townsend wrote, “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.” Jali, fly free to the Land of Endless Treats!
