Blah, blah, blah. Actually, none of this is important - where I went to school, where I worked, etc. Everyone knows who my family is and how much I love them. Nothing could ever change the meaningfulness they have all brought to my life. Outside of my family, the only thing that matters is how I made you feel. I hope that I was positive and had a loving impact to you. Whether for years or just a small sliver in time. You mattered to me and brought joy to my life. Please keep the family in your prayers.
