Recently 2 great people that I have had the chance to know very briefly in the year that I've been here in Ellijay GA have passed on. Jason Vick was a good man, tho a many of not so many words. He was a dear friend to those he called a friend and a good man to his fiancee Nicole. Sadly his life was taken from us to soon by a man who was more worried about a cell phone on his floor board. And then there is Billy Martin. Billy was only about the age of 8 or 9 I do believe. He was unfortunate engough to be in the same car that was hit. He died to soon as well. He was a child who always had a smile and a story for you and always a warm hug. He was Nicole's son. So today at 2pm we will go and we will say goodbye one last time to Jason and Billy. It is sad and I can't even imagine what Nicole is going thru right now at the loss of both of her loves. But she is in my heart and in my prayers every minute of everyday.
So take a minute today and kiss your kids, hug your husband or significant other. Because as we are all to often reminded-Tomorrow is not promised to me or to you.
"Perhaps they are not the stars, but rather openings in Heaven where the love of our lost ones pours through and shines down upon us to let us know they are happy."
