The Funeral

I went to Suzy's funeral this afternoon. There were a lot of people there I hadn't seen in years, and many that I see every day and don't really know all that much. If I ever die (I'm hoping that I'll get zapped by the aliens or something and skip the whole death thing.), I can only hope that half the number of people will visit my casket as visited Suzy's.

On the way home, I found myself thinking, "I need to tell Suzy that I finally met her kids." Oh wait. I can't tell her that any more.

We forget as we remember. Then we remember. Then we forget. Then, eventually, we are forgotten. Live it. You only have one.
