Do What? Anything and Everything that you have been putting off.
I subscribed to the obituaries to a funeral home in a small town I was born in. Sounds odd, but I had grandparents I was very close to and they know everyone is this town and I have such fond memories of my grandparents and their friends. I lost my grandparents at a young age. There were only in their 50s and 60s. Today I got notification that my Grandpa's best friend just joined him in Heaven. I have old photos and videos of this man taking care of me when I was a baby, toddler and so on. He was my favorite.
So what did I put off? About five years ago (at my uncle's funeral), I was invited to this man's house by his wife. She was so excited to see me. I told her I would come over. Got her name and phone number. Time went by and somehow I had forgotten until today. I really wish I would have went just to hear his stories. Now it's too late. I will go to the funeral and hopefully see some familiar faces. I really want to go to apologize to his wife for not keeping my promise. She said to me........"Carmen, please come soon, before it's too late." I never thought It'd be too late at that time.
Feeling awful and sad.
