I could not find any other proof that this sweet soul has been lost. Thank you for capturing my closure. I remember a poem Gabriel read in class about losing his friend to gang violence. How he held him while the other boy bled to death in his arms. And how we, as a class, all come together for another poem about peace. Written by the lovely Eve. I had Adam and Eve and the angel Gabriel. Go must have been greedy for him to return.

Well Anonymous has said it all. Kevin, I think you are developing a series here. Each one shows your creative eye of course, but your sensitivity shines through. Book #2 in the making. So very well done.

God bless Gabriel and his family and friends.

An amazing part of being human is how often tragedy becomes art.

How sad something you see so often in L.A. why do they murder each other?
