It has taken me all this time since William O. Goggins passing to say something.
I do not take death well.
It is especially difficult to remember and say good-bye to someone who loves life and who you love and respect for the fact of their earthly existence that fills the world with love and respect.
This is, however, a good day to fondly remember someone but, for me, not to say good-bye. The fine young man I know as William O. Goggins is an old soul who has been running around the universe for a long, long time. I know that he has been doing this forever and that his spirit will continue doing so.
We will meet again, all of us, we people from the stars. But I will look forward especially to seeing him again.
I am not going to say good-bye because, for one thing, you cannot say good-bye in our Blackfoot language. You can only say something like, “I will see you again”.
This is what I want to say here, “William O. Goggins I will see you again someday and we will visit and have a good time eating and drinking some thing good, while we remember when. But this time, don’t go running off so soon. I know you have a universe to travel and that you have to make like a comet . . . . but then again you do leave a beautiful trail as you come and go”.
