"Fallen. Drifting aimlessly on a sea of grief and pain, the leaf cradles a teardrop. Offers refuge. Embodies hope. Just as winter awakens to spring, our deepest sorrow harbors the seed of hope renewed. Hope renewed." -by Susan Ring
The leaf and teardrop image symbolizes the love and grief that families and loved ones feel when someone dies. In grief, as in nature, there are cycles and movement. As seasons change, so do feelings. There is winter and spring, sadness and hope. -Resolve Through Sharing
