The how is long forgotten

It is long time since my parents passed. By now, the “how” is long forgotten, although it was painful at the time. But I thank them every day for the gifts of generosity, caring and that magical ability to look beyond themselves. They were both active in the community, always helping others. It was the very act of thoughtfulness which resulted in the best form of help. If I can humour their memory by being like them, I will have lived a good life!

Thanks mom and dad
