3. And now there is silence

"I have decided to lay him to rest here in Rath Dínen, for he deserves the honour."
I say, knowing only too well that such words cannot give comfort.
I could tell her of his valour in battle, but I doubt that this would make her feel any better.
So I reach out for her and laying my arm about her shoulders I draw her to my side, giving the comfort my words cannot.
So we stand here in silence, mother and friend, mourning in our hearts for this special person.
Halbarad had been a brave man, true of heart but first and foremost, my friend.
