Dedicated to the general sights, news and funny happenings all around the world
Spotted : My favourite uncle, who passed away on Wednesday night after a lengthy battle with ALS. You were robbed of the ability to eat, and the ability to speak. Three weeks ago, a caregiver asked you what the downsides of your disease were. No longer able to speak, you wrote this note:
"Downsides: I cannot speak.
I cannot eat.
I love life.
And when my time comes, I will still be smiling"
Thank you for sharing those wonderful words of wisdom with those of us who must now face the holidays without you. You enjoyed your life until the very last moment, and proved to us that it is not the years in your life, but the life in your years. We plan to display a copy of this note in a prominent place in our home, to remind us that if you could remain so positive and happy knowing what your future held, surely we can choose to be happy in the face of our obstacles as well.
Love your inspired niece
