December 28

To laugh often and much
To win the respect of intelligent people
and the affection of children
To earn the appreciation of honest critics
and endure the betrayal of false friends
To appreciate beauty
To find the best in others
To leave the world a bit better
whether by a healthy child
a garden patch
or a redeemed social condition
To know even one life has breathed easier because you lived
This is to have succeeded.
        -Ralph Waldo Emerson

I miss you my friend
