I'm sitting here trying to work, but all I can seem to do is remember. I have been reminded of what is most important in the hardest of ways these past two days. The world lost someone yesterday that walked this world with a spirit of peace. He was such a rare gift. Although overcome with sadness, it is so easy to celebrate him and the life he led. He walked with music in his ears, peace in his heart and acceptance of all.
He left the world better in his 28 years than many leave in 85. I can say that with full confidence. He left us so young but left a legacy of kindness and a warmth that will be with his wife and son for the rest of their lives. Both Eric and I remember the way he looked when he vowed to love her until death parted them. The love they shared was so apparent, so genuine and so easy to see. I remember so vividly how he loved her. I remember him as a Dad. I remember his joy and honesty of figuring this new role out with his love. I remember how his life was centered around her and his baby boy. I remember the way their home was filled with the best beats and light.
I wish you weren't gone so soon but celebrate with hundreds of others for knowing you and being able to be a witness to the life you lived. You are greatly missed.
