As some of you know, a very close friend of mine (ours) has had a tough week.
A young man she considered her second son was killed in a fatal auto accident
attributed to mechanical failure. The funeral is today and I would like to
pass on part of an email she sent last night.
<<Light a candle, say a prayer, chant, drink a glass of wine, take a hike, or
even just close your eyes for a moment - however you do it, at 11:30
tomorrow, please think of him, and the incredible person he was, although you
never knew him, and the incredible person he will never have a chance to be
and she continues...
<<If nothing else, this is a sad, serious reminder that you should tell the
people you care about that you care, and often. You never know when it will
be the last time - and I will always be grateful that one of the last things
he and I said to each other, before he got in that Jeep, was that we loved
each other. He would have been 17 next month.>>
Take a minute right now and tell the people you care about just what they
mean to you. Don't forget to take pictures of everyday life - those are those
most poignant memories of all. And please, spend a moment this morning,
during your busy day, to think of our friend, her family and everyone else
that loved and cared about this young man.
