Raul was the kind of spirit who would light up the room, light up the world.
His love was actual and pure. His beauty infectious.
His embrace came with an ease we are unlikely to see from any other.
His creativity spun a thousand webs.
With his passing we are left yearning. Yearning to be touched again by his electricity.
With this light missing from our world, where do we look?
In a culture so disconnected from death, we are left to linger,
knowing not where to place our love.
Where to place our sadness, is it lost?
We lost our dear friend Raul, unexpectedly on October 22nd.
He was one of my husband’s best friends. We will forever hold a place in our hearts for this brilliantly creative soul.
Raul, you are deeply missed.
