Comments: In Memory to My Brother:

Stop all the clocks, cut off the telephone,
Prevent the dog from barking with a juicy bone,
Silence the pianos and with muffled drum
Bring out the coffin, let the mourners come.

Let aeroplanes circle moaning overhead
Scribbling on the sky the message He Is Dead,
Put crepe bows round the white necks of the public doves,
Let the traffic policemen wear black cotton gloves.

He is my North, my South, my East and West,
My working week and my Sunday rest,
My noon, my midnight, my talk, my song;
I thought that love would last for ever: I was right.

The stars are not wanted now: put out every one;
Pack up the moon and dismantle the sun;
Pour away the ocean and sweep up the wood.
For nothing now can ever come to any good.

Comments: Hector was my friend and I am proud that he was. Always professional, always focused and yet warm and loyal to those he called his friends. We think and talk of Hector often and he is greatly missed. Thanks for creating this memorial to Hector. Somehow he knows and is pleased. Jaimito

Comments: Dear Wendy,
What an absolutely beautiful memorial. I lost my husband unexpectedly a few months ago and in my desperate search for help and understanding I came across & became member of 'Widownet' I continue to check out the memorial sites created for those loved and lost and they are all so beautiful but your memorial to Hector is one that truly stands out. Surely Hector would be so honored that you created such a wonderful tribute to him. I read every page and listened to every song....and let the tears flow as I thought about not only your loss, but my own.

Thankyou so much for sharing such personal thoughts and experiences about your love, life, and loss.

Comments: I have been chatting with you for months since the death of my husband in July. I met you on the grief support group. I have just now looked at your website and it is sooo beautiful. What a tribute, and what a way to express your feelings. I felt so much comfort from reading, knowing that I am going to make it. I understand it is a hard path, but I will make it, I have to. Thanks for sharing this wonderful site. Love You, Alice

Comments: I don't normally write to many people online, but I happened onto your site and felt compelled to reach out and connect with you. Your love is unmistakable, and your grief is all to familiar. You see, I found your website as I was looking for a way to remember my Hector Maldonado, who passed away unexpectedly last November at the age of 37. Your words seem to come out of me. My loves grave site bears the poem "They say memories are golden, well maybe that is true, I never wanted memories I only wanted you...." so you can see why I felt a tug in my heart when I saw your site. I've appreciate your words about your experience and I thank you for sharing your grief, as it has made an impact upon me. Thank you for sharing your Hector, he was, and is, as special my Hector.

Comments: Some people never experience the love and devotion you still feel for Hector their whole time on this earth. I'm sure he knew what a lucky man he was. I hope you can continue your journey through the healing experience. I lost my husband, Terry, 01/14/09 and it seems like eons. It's hard to imagine life without him. I too amd "going through the motions" always hoping things will get better. Good luck to us both.

Comments: Wendy,
I have been chatting with you for several months now on Griefnet, and Allan actually gave me a link to this website because something I said in an email reminded him of this website. It has taken me about 10 hours to be able to get through everything here ( LOTS of stopping because my eyes were filled with tears) This is one of the most beautiful sites I have seen. Thank you for sharing all of this with us. Hector would be very proud of you.

Comments: Wendy, I am so sorry for your lost. My heart is truely with you. I was Hector's girlfriend for three wonderful years and I very much understand your pain. My beloved husband and father to my only daughter recently died. I was doing research over the internet to find my husband's biological father and this is how I came across the fact that Hector had died. Before I was able to find my husband's father he suddenly died too. He had undiagnosed leukemia. Dearest Wendy, I understand your pain. Hector was the very first love of my life. I was 18 and he was 23. We studied in the Inter-American University together. I would like to get in contact with you. There is so much I would like to tell you about your beloved. My deepest sympathy at the lost of this wonderful man. Please e-mail me. Sincerely, Lourdes.
