My thought for the day after attending a wake

Yesterday ( Thursday September 8 ) I stopped by to pay my last respects to Philip A. Wright, Sr. who passed on September 4th.

In the receiving line there was a table next to where the condolence cards were being kept. On this table was a small plaque that read:

“Life is not a journey to the grave with intentions of arriving safely in a pretty well-preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out and loudly proclaiming ... WOW! What a ride!”

Yeah Mr. Wright, that is EXACTLY how I am going to remember you.

Hopefully someone will come along to pick up in place of you but you’ll never be fully replaced.

Rest in peace sir.
