My uncle passed away tonight after slipping into a coma two days ago. He was an entrepreneur, a lover of history, a proud New Englander, and a good man. May he rest in peace.

While I am agnostic, I would like to believe that there is more to life than this momentary existence we lead. If you are reading this, please do someone a kindness today in memory of someone who passed. Let's make our ephemeral reality a little easier for us all to bear. 

Thank you.

They do keep on going in memories, at the very least. Their DNA obviously does too, if they opted for that.

Don't be afraid to cry hard a couple of times. It will help you process it emotionally.

I remember people close to me who pass, by incorporating one of their values in my personal life. With my father it was how well he treated his guests.
