The Grieving Need You Most After the Funeral

My father died suddenly while on vacation three years ago. The event rattled the bedrock of my life in ways that are difficult to describe, and taught me lessons I couldn’t have learned any other way.

I received this as change from Ruby Tuesdays in Pottsville, PA. It'd be awesome if it managed to reach the family of George Cain, a firefighter who lost his life in 9/11. Feel free to share. I'm interested in seeing how far it gets!

Within days of the 9/11 attacks, New York artist Ejay Weiss rode his bike to Ground Zero to collect ash and grit from the devastation. He incorporated the ash into nine paintings called β€œ9/11 Elegies,” which serve as a metaphor of both the towers’ windows and their footprints. His paintings are currently on display in the 9/11 Memorial Museum’s special exhibition, Rendering the Unthinkable.
