So that brings up a question. What do I need to do differently in light of that truth? Certainly it shifts priorities. Acquiring more of anything is a low priority. Living with passion is a high priority. Loving and serving people is the highest priority. Leaving them with a sense of being special and valuable and necessary--that's what Joey did so well. That's why we grieve him.
He lived with passion and infected the rest of us with it. He loved each one of us in a special way. He truly made life so much better for all of us, he can never be replaced. I want to follow in his footsteps and leave a shining mark on those around me.
Like Joey did.
