Farewell my friend

Don’t Waste Your Life
If you were still with us, I bet that’s what you’d say. You’d want each of us to push forward and make the most of every single day.

We all know that life is full of challenges – problems, setbacks and strife. And yet, what choice do we have but to keep going, don’t waste your life!
You always wanted the best for us. You sought to advice and counsel us to enhance our chances of success in life. In this day and age when so many people seek personal gratification, you remained selfless to the very end.

Thanks for being a great friend to students, a calm, caring, steady presence, as we struggled through our daily grind.

You fought so hard to live, I know you wanted to be around for your family, your loved ones, your students. Sadly, it was not to be, you’ve been called home – much too soon, too soon!

Your untimely passing serves as a stark reminder to all who take life for granted, those of us who are so paralyzed by fear of failure that we don’t step forward to truly pursue our goals. If you were still here, I’m sure you’d smile and say – Don’t Waste Your Life.

So, that’s my legacy to you Don – no matter what the future holds, I promise you this. I will pursue my dreams aggressively and I’ll go on encouraging everyone I know to do the same. Your spirit now soars with the Eagles you loved so much.

Farewell my friend, farewell!
