If I Die Young


From NPR – Parents Lose Their Daughter And Their Life Savings To Opioids

Song played at funeral by The Band Perry 

If I die young, bury me in satin. Lay me down on a bed of roses. Sink me in the river.

Lord, make me a rainbow. I’ll shine down on my mother. She’ll know I’m safe with you when she stands under my colors.

Caravan of No Despair: A Memoir of Loss and Transformation Mirabi Starr

mirabai starr

On the day her first book came out—a new translation of Dark Night of the Soul by Saint John of the Cross—Mirabai Starr’sdaughter, Jenny, was killed in a car accident. “My spiritual life began the day my daughter died,” writes Mirabai. Even with decades of spiritual practice and a deep immersion in the greatest mystical texts, she found herself utterly unprepared for “my most powerful catalyst for transformation, my fiercest and most compassionate teacher.”


Broken Hallelujahs by Beth Allen Selvcove

The losses in our lives are both big and small, and cover a range of experiences. We leave home. We experience physical illness and disabilities. We struggle with vocation and finances. We may long for a spouse or child. We lose people we love to addiction or illness and death.
