Mr. Spock of Star Trek is gone at 83. Now his words written below has bearing to the death of all, his and ours and everyone else’s – even those of SAF 44. How beautifully succinct, simple and profound, how “the loss of life can be mourned but only if that life was wasted.”

When we grieve for our loved ones, it seems the way we mourn may hint at how a life was led, well or badly, if a life was lived for oneself or for others, whether the grieving is total or eased by pride and appreciation because one life generously served many others.
