I post this after learning of the tragic death of Soundgarden/Audioslave lead vocalist Chris Cornell by means of suicide by hanging. A lot of people never truly understand why people like me mourn a death of a person I have never known personally. I hope this will help you understand why.

Be free, be strong, be proud of who you have been, 

know that you will be mourned and missed, that no one can replace you, that you have loved and are beloved.

Move beyond form, flowing like water, feeding on sunlight and moonlight, radiant as the stars in the night sky. 

Pass the gates, enter the dark without fear, returning to the womb of life to steep in the cauldron of rebirth. 

Rest, heal grow young again. 

Be blessed.
