Tell Them …

Saturday, my sister-in-law, Sandy, passed away after weeks of fighting to recover from cancer surgery.   My wife has been reading a book on Jewish values and commented how Sandy lived by them with no show or pretense.    We knew it all along, of course, but probably never took the time to tell her how special she was.   She’s been more than a sister-in-law, she’s been a dear friend and very much a part of the fabric of our lives.   We know that she knew we loved her but we’ve been wondering if she knew how much.   Knowing Sandy, she probably did.   But I want to pass this along:  Tell them.  Tell the people you love just how much they mean to you and tell them how you think they’re special.    Don’t wait.   Don’t be wondering someday if they knew.

    Words are powerful. We need to pay more attention to just how powerful they are. They can inspire all of us to speak straight from the heart.

    I’m so sorry to hear about Sandy’s passing. I only met her a few times, but whenever I was with her she had a smile that lit up the room. She understood the joy of life. God bless her and all who miss her.

    With Sadness and Love, Joanne

    Mr. Bud…..so sorry to hear about your siste-in-law. If there is any good news about her passing, at least she did not suffer for YEARS! Anyway, our prayers go out to you and the family. See you soon.
