Thank you for all you have given.
I love you for what you were and what you will become.
I am so sorry for what we did to you.
I am so glad I could help you.
I feel your transition coming to a close.
what you were is no longer relevant to you.
but it is so relevant to us who are still here living in homes made of your body.
With deepest gratitude I offer these words as a reminder of your sacrifice.
May we learn the way of making our houses and streets that does not kill mountains.
