We've lost the best that lived in jest.
He quietly said what we suggest.

Premium Member After The Burial of Christ
Dusk fell rapidly. Three women dressed in black
With their young lanky companion hurried back
To their rather small impoverished dark room.

Silence reigned except for the youngest maiden
Sobbing, though all were with heavy heart...Read More

that that wasn't enough
