"Grief changes shape, but it never ends. People have a misconception that you can deal with it and say, 'It's gone, and I'm better.' They're wrong. When the people you love are gone, you're alone. I miss being a part of their lives and them being a part of mine. I wonder what the present would be like if they were here - what we might have done together. I miss all the great things that will never be."
~ Keanu Reeves regarding the loss of his stillborn daughter and his girlfriend in 2001.
A lymmeric about Cliff by Regina Erickson (used with written permission of the author) and inspiried by this story:

This memorial website was created in the memory of our loved one, Clifton Christian, who was born in Texas on January 10, 1968 and passed away on October 11, 2005 at the age of 37. We will remember him forever.

You rocked the classroom...
40 years ago today / Dawn Christian (His widow )
Dear Cliff, Today would've been your 40th birthday. It's hard for me to belive that you are actually stuck forever at 37 years old because in my mind you should be 40 today. You died just 3 months short of your 38th birthday. This time last year I wa...
