3 thoughts on “Tsaftarides, Elijah C.”
Dearest Tsaftarides Family, I send my deepest condolences on the loss of Elijah. Trust and BELIEVE that his life was not lived in vain. His imprint on this world is permanent. May God walk with you each day through this journey and provide your hearts with a peace beyond your understanding.
the poem by Linda Ellis
I read of a man who stood to speak at the funeral of a friend. He referred to the dates on the tombstone from the beginning… to the end.
He noted that first came the date of birth and spoke of the following date with tears, but he said what mattered most of all was the dash between those years.
For that dash represents all the time they spent alive on earth and now only those who loved them know what that little line is worth.
For it matters not, how much we own, the cars… the house… the cash. What matters is how we live and love and how we spend our dash.
So think about this long and hard; are there things you’d like to change? For you never know how much time is left that still can be rearranged.
To be less quick to anger and show appreciation more and love the people in our lives like we’ve never loved before.
If we treat each other with respect and more often wear a smile… remembering that this special dash might only last a little while.
So when your eulogy is being read, with your life’s actions to rehash, would you be proud of the things they say about how you lived your dash?
Our deepest sympathies to your family, you are in our thoughts and prayers. May God give you strength and his memory be a eternal.
Elijah was a great person, and a even greater friend. He was an amazing kid and it pains me to see him go so soon.
