Six years ago this evening, The Amazing Bob shuffled off this mortal coil.

In the gardens of memory, the palaces of dreams, this is where we will meet.
~ Lewis Carroll, Alice Through the Looking Glass

Today is also the 160th anniversary of the first time Carroll told Alice's adventures to Lorina, Edith and Alice Liddell.

No one is actually dead until the ripples they cause in the world die away.
~ Terry Pratchett

Unable are the loved to die. For love is immortality.
~ Emily Dickinson

Me and TAB in our early days.

If death meant just leaving the stage long enough to change costume and come back as a new character, would you slow down? Or speed up?
~ Chuck Palahniuk

Grief is a most peculiar thing; we’re so helpless in the face of it. It’s like a window that will simply open of its own accord.
~ Arthur Golden

Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened.
~ Dr. Seuss

I will not say: do not weep; for not all tears are an evil.
~ J.R.R. Tolkien

It's so curious: one can resist tears and 'behave' very well in the hardest hours of grief. But then someone makes you a friendly sign behind a window, or one notices that a flower that was in bud only yesterday has suddenly blossomed, or a letter slips from a drawer... and everything collapses.  
~ Colette
