I never planned on writing too many personal things here but around 8:30 this evening I received an email from the Director of the volunteer program I am involved with.
One of our most cherished members passed away today - suddenly with no forewarning. She was a bright and lively person - with a big smile and hug. Her name is Donna. She just retired a week ago. Apparently she was diagnosed with high blood pressure a week ago and started medication and today... gone. They think it was a cardiac event but we will have to wait for the Medical Examiner's results.
The email ended with "say I Love you to someone tonight". That is what I wanted to say to everyone. Remember - always tell people how you feel because they might be gone the next day and you will carry that regret and guilt for a long time. It is inevitable to not. The burden of forgotten goodbyes is big so tonight... tomorrow... and all the days - remember to tell your loved ones that you LOVE them.
