I attended the funeral of a friend’s father who passed away abruptly in an accident. What I took home today – apart from appreciating your parents when they are still around is how much it matters to be there for a friend in times for need. We weren’t the closest of friends but he appreciated our presence at this point tremendously that it hit me, how the little effort you make to be there for a friend can mean so much.
Isn’t this what life should be all about? Being there for those who matter.
