Ive had a sad week...My cousin passed away on July 6th after his couragous battle with cancer. I hate cancer. I hate cancer. I hate cancer. I dont understand.... He was an amazing wonderful person with big dreams and even only in his 20's, his spirit was pure and beautiful and just....someone this world needs here. I've been spending a lot of time on his Facebook page..reading what others wrote, sharing favorite memories, posting pictures, reading the last things he wrote..and I came across his "favorite quotes"
"It aint about how hard you hit, its about how hard you can get hit and keep movin forward, how much you can take and keep movin forward" - The Italian Stallion, Rocky Balboa
"Accept the Challenge"
"Go the Distance
I last saw Marsh about 3 weeks ago when I stopped in Red Deer on my way home from Edmonton...we hung out in my Aunt and Uncles basement while he laid on the couch..I ragged on him for watching " Joe Dirt" and he made fun of me for something, I dont remember now,..if I couldnt "see" him, Id never know he was sick. He was the same perky, friendly, outgoing, hilarious, fun, witty, person that Ive always known. Making all of us laugh over and over...My favorite: Marshal giving my Grandma a hard time because with her sick and laying up on the same couch too ..he was now having to share his Moms attention and nursemaid-ing.."Go home Grandma and let it be all about me again!"..LOL! I guess his body just couldnt hold up to his larger than life spirit.
Love your people and live your best life...more today than yesterday.
