This has left me pondering what we can do to honor the lives that have been taken too soon and I think that one way is to live while the living is good. Don't put off until tomorrow the things that can be enjoyed today! So often we get caught up in all the "have to's" that we don't get to our "want to's." We need to make sure that while we have this amazing gift of life that we live it to the fullest. We owe that much to all those who have left this Earth too early.
One final thought, while we are living while the living is good we need to remember to let those important people in our lives know just how much we love them and appreciate them.
