Nugget of Knowledge

"The best way to be missed when your gone is to stand for something when you're here."
- Seth Godin

The past year I have lost several friends and I miss them and their insight. But- I am often surprised at how everyone appears to move on. I often wander if I will make a big enough difference and will I be missed for more than a brief fleeting moment. My grandfather passed away more than 20 years ago and I still reference him and look to our time together for advice . He made a difference. What will you be remembered for?   - Amy
