    I Will Be Remembering All Of The People Who Are Suffering The Death Of A Loved One.

    even though I am not. IMy condolences (although I am sure words fail to express your grief, as mine fail to express my condolences) to the survivors, and may the slain rest in peace. As a poet, all too often I find words won't do.
