The woman in the photo below died of cancer a week ago. I didn't know her; I never met her.
Yet, through a series of circumstances, I unexpectedly attended her funeral. I was struck by the overwhelmingly positive stories I heard about this woman. To a person the attendees described her as full of life, giving, caring, positive, happy, fun-loving, inspiring…she touched everyone and made their lives better.
And it's clear to me that her memory, her legacy, and her influence will live on; she will continue to influence and inspire those closest to her to live life fully and help others. And what a privilege it was to witness her impact…And what a lesson it was.
