As I'm driving to my best friend's father's funeral, I can't help but be faced with the fact that life is too short. Death always catches us off guard, even when you think you are expecting it. We all try to justify why it happens and how the person is always "better off" but when it hits you, really hits you, it still doesn't take the pain away.
The only positive side effect of death is that it reminds us (in the most painful way possible) that we are, in fact, still living. Living with the memory of the ones that have gone before us, but still, nonetheless, living. All we can do is love the ones that are still here and cherish each moment we have.
