Harriet Beecher Stowe once said:
The bitterest tears shed over graves are for words left unsaid and deeds left undone.
I am so thankful for the time we had with my uncle to say those necessary things, to do what must be done. We listened to the memories other shared of him, we found peace and comfort in the legacy he left behind. There is something powerful that comes from having no regrets…
He is no fool who gives up what he cannot have for what he cannot lose. – Jim Elliot
