Yesterday was the birthday of my good friend Chuck Hamshaw, who passed away unexpectedly of a heart condition several months ago. Chuck would have been 52.
I’m reminded that we never know how long we’ll have to spend with the ones we care about, but as long as we celebrate their lives and remember what they taught us, then they’ll live forever in our memories and our deeds.
Chuck – here’s what you taught me – 1) Take time for others. No matter how busy you are, remember to say hello and to spend a minute with the important others in your life, 2) BE playful – find fun wherever and whenever appropriate, 3) Be adventurous – take risks, play hard, do things.
Thank you Chuck. I miss you buddy:)
