Thanks folks

I have only just resumed sitting and hence my post. When I am not sitting I do not post on a zen forum.

I visited my friend 2 days before his death. I said "I only know that you are going to somewhere beautiful - it is nothing to do with God or religion"

He made a massive attempt to reply with one sentence "I only wish that there was a better way of doing it" . I knew that this was said with humour.

We are cousins. We lived much of life together from childhood right up to marriage. He was my best man, I was his.

He grew up on a marine peninsula. It is a child's paradise. I will try to load a photo later of my daughter playing on the rocks where we did 60 years ago.

Life goes on.

See if this works

This was taken on the day we buried my mate. A family cemetery has grown since I was young. An early settler is buried there too but one would have to research to find out who.

There is another Pre-European mass grave not too far away. It is well hidden. The people that know about it can be counted on one hand. The secret stays within the family.

The bay remains calm, peaceful and inviting

Cheers

Still not working. But your evocative words stand by themselves.
