(Not So) Wordless Wednesday... Rest in Peace

Wynken, Blynken, and Nod one night
 Sailed off in a wooden shoe—
Sailed on a river of crystal light,
Into a sea of dew.
"Where are you going, and what do you wish?"
The old moon asked the three.
"We have come to fish for the herring fish
That live in this beautiful sea;
Nets of silver and gold have we!"

I haven't heard this since I was little. Such a sweet way to remember them. They've been on my mind every day. Rest in peace!

Very touching! My thoughts and prayers are with all those who have lost loved ones.

I'm simply heartbroken. My WW is dedicated to this as well.

Beautiful tribute to the sweet souls that were yanked back so tragically. :(
