Lost a dear friend and mentor yesterday and as I reflect on this person’s life, I can’t help but think that if there was one dude who understood the meaning of life, it was this guy. He lived it exactly the way he wanted and if you didn’t like it, you could kindly step out of the way. He taught me valuable life lessons and how to conduct business, to cross my T’s and dot my I’s and never, and I mean never, ASSUME. Because we all know what happens. LOL. He challenged me on every level and in many ways contributed to the person that I am today. He was a plane jumping, mountain climbing, marine with a heart of gold whom loved his family and at the end of the day, I know he loved his life. Gone too soon, completely and utterly unfair, but this is not a death I will be mourning. I will miss you. Already do. I am however going to celebrate your life. You lived an incredible one.
