Have you ever had to part with a friend or a loved one but couldn't summon the right words to see them off?
Saying goodbye does not always feel like the right way to put aside feelings of longing for a loved one for a later time. It just doesn't cut it as saying goodbye to friends and family was never meant to be an easy task.

'Until we meet again' symbolizes hope, radiates warmth and ensures that at some point you are going to be reunited with your dear ones. The words "'till we meet again" were written by Richard A.
