We all have loved ones that we will memorialize today in our own unique way. With each person that we fondly recall today, recognize the many benefits that you realized through experiencing life with them.
Through our lived experiences with them, each has left behind much more than words and memories for us. By their example, they taught us many lessons. Live and apply those lessons learned in full appreciation for why they were shown to us. Each lesson can be much more than just a memory as you live to continue learning from them.
“As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.” — JFK —
