I'm sorry to hear that, dude. Memory Eternal! I hope her life still brings you joy, and shows you God. And I know that God is taking care of her with his unlimited love. I, also, pray that you've found some peace. Lord, have mercy. Lord, have mercy. Lord, have mercy.

Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

Excellence of character, then, is a state concerned with choice, lying in a mean relative to us, this being determined by reason and in the way in which the man of practical wisdom would determine it. Now it is a mean between two vices, that which depends on excess and that which depends on defect.
