In lieu of flowers, the family asks that you do an act of kindness. Smile at a stranger, hold open a door, hug your children, call your loved ones, make amends and love without conditions.
Though this life is over, we will mourn the loss and grow from the lessons we have learned. For if we do not make a change, we are destined to repeat the same mistakes and our time on earth will have been wasted.
Thank you to the staff at Canterfield of Kennesaw and Agape Hospice Care for their care and support.
