My best friend told me this when I lost my cousin Kevin to Ewing's Sarcoma and it made me feel better:

The people we love live on in our hearts.
It takes a long time to get used to the loss of someone we love,
But it's important to remember that when people die,
They leave something very special behind -
They leave us memories,
Of many things they said and did.
And as long as we have those memories,
The people we love will live on in our hearts and minds.
