The past year was filled with well known people passing away that we will all miss collectively. On a personal level, I lost my aunt that passed due to a blockage and one of my best friends due to cancer. One of my in-laws also passed due to age as it was her time to go. These people will be greatly missed and for the family members, the holidays reflected the effect of their absence. We never know when the people in our lives will leave us, so make the time with them count. Let them know how you feel about them while their alive because they won’t be able to read their headstones or hear the eulogy spoken over them.
