    My Cousin Ricky died last night. I just wanted to remind everyone to appreciate life. And always remember the last time you spoke to someone may just be THE LAST TIME you speak to that person. Rick and I never had a crossed word with each other thankfully. But if you have friends or family you dont speak to for some petty reason, end that nonsense. You just never know when your number will be called. He was a truly great person. Nice to everyone. My family is QUICKLY dying out. Not many of us left. Especially the old guard. Rather than taking this time to be sad Im going to reflect on our many fun times together. When you're a only child like myself cousins often are your brothers and sisters. And I had a good one. Say Hello To Heavin my brother. A temporary goodbye until we meet agae.

    What a wonderful attitude. Sounds like the two of you were close, and while you will miss him, understand he is much better off now than any of us. Prayers sent for you.

    Completely understand and great post.

    I just attended a funeral of a very dear friend.

    She passed away from Parkinson's and was in her 40s. She left behind two young teenage children, a boy and girl.

    Her husband was still in a state of shock.

    Life is so precious and so quick, don't waste it.

    Sorry for your loss, thoughts and prayers.

    There comes a point in time when the sadness fades, and the immediate involuntary response when you think of that person is a wry smile.

    I hope everybody gets to that point in time sooner.

    Tears on Earth mean a party in Heaven. You have an incredible attitude and your message of appreciating one another is important and powerful. Thank you for sharing and reminding us.

    Prayers to you and your family, do something in Ricky's honor today.
