We remember our friends and classmates who have reached the end of their journey. Their homecoming is bittersweet. It is here that we lay them to rest, returning home for the last time  ---

The Dash of Our Life: Life, Death and Everything In Between

Our deceased loved ones once walked, talked, laughed, cried, worked and loved just like everyone of us. While we were young children, days lasted f.o.r.e.v.e.r. When we were in our twenties, “old” was fifty and nothing seemed impossible. Now that we are in our fifties, time is speeding rapidly. We often find ourselves trying to hold onto a 'moment' for just a little longer.

We cherish those moments and bank them into the dash of our life.

The moments in life that are most positively memorable and cause us to feel the most happy are those that are filled with an abundance of love and belonging. The secret of life is really no secret at all. Love is the most public secret known to man.

Who we spend our dash with determines a lot of how we live during our lives and our level of happiness. We are surrounded with people who love us and add value to our existence.

You only get one dash, so be selective with whom you spend it with and what you do with it. Seize every moment as if it were your last and drink in the sweetness of life. Make sure you live your dash so fully that it is still shouting love long after you’ve gone to rest.

It isn’t just a line. It's your life...
