"I'll miss him. I'll try to learn something from this. I think he would have liked that.


Hi Mike,

1) Pituophis said, " Sad, sad news indeed. John and I had our disagreements, but I am now so glad that John and I had "made up".

There is one lesson to learn, clean things up as you go. You may not have the chance to do it later.

2) Many years ago I received a call in the night, my 13 year old son was dead. I had no chance to say good bye, to tell him I loved him...

That is a second lesson, tell those you love them how you feel. Don't assume they "know" it. Even if they do, they'll like hearing it.

3) Don't count on tomorrow, you can only do it "today".

Learn these three lessons and you may save yourself a lifetime of regrets that can never be undone.

Regards, Ken
