It seems as if when someone you know dies, a little of you dies with them. The closer you were to them the bigger that piece. Think of them fondly but always make the best of this day and each that follows. The scars of life's sad events stay with us but they need not dictate our future or our attitude. We can choose to dwell in the past or to live in the now with hope for the future. Go forward with a smile and the knowledge that your smile without additional word or deed has the power to spread joy to all that see it.
