Thanks for sharing your message. Today is the one year anniversary of my Father's death. I found it very fitting that I would stumble across your message today. I can't believe it has been a year since I've seen my Dad. Time flies by so quickly. The death of my parents had a tremendous impact on my life in many ways. One thing that continues to stand out is that life is short, and once you are gone your life will not have had any impact on the material goods you have collected. The impact you have is on the people in your life. Our lives intersect with so many different people, weaving in and out and touching so many other lives. The kindness, generosity, laughter, and love that you give- This is the legacy you leave behind.
Thank you for reaching out and letting others share your experience.
