Published: Fri, 09/09/22
In honor of my mother, Joan Donna Griffith
It's been 21 years since my mother was killed in the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001. She was amazing and we miss her dearly. I invite you to visit the tribute on my website to learn more about the life and impact of my Mommy, Joan Donna Griffith.
With much love, Paula
AS LONG AS THERE IS LOVE, THERE WILL BE GRIEF.
The grief of time passing, of life moving on half-finished, of empty spaces that were once bursting with the laughter and energy of people we loved. As long as there is love there will be grief because grief is love's natural
continuation. It shows up in the aisles of stores we once frequented, in the half-finished bottle of wine we pour out, in the whiff of cologne we get two years after they've been gone. Grief is a giant neon
sign, protruding through everything, pointing everywhere, broadcasting loudly, "Love was here." In the finer print, quietly, "Love still is." - Heidi Priebe
