What do you say when someone so young dies? I don't know how to even begin.
I know that my life was barely beginning at twenty-three. I said "I do" and moved away from home with lots of hopes and dreams. Little did I know how young I was and how much of life was still to be experienced.
I keep thinking "Gather Ye Rosebuds While Ye May" and I suspect Frankie is looking down on me shaking his head in disbelief at my inappropriate quote for somebody who was six foot five, athletic and outdoorsy, and never considered gathering a rosebud in his life. But there are so just so many things that he will never get to do.
There are worse epitaphs.
