I have to say, I seriously hate that this keeps happening. It seems that almost every year, I am attending another friend’s funeral service. It is truly devastating and I wish it would just stop. I don’t know how much more my heart can take. The last person that passed away who became close with our family was our HVAC technician, believe it or not. This guy was awesome and he always went above and beyond with his service! He was getting up there in years and my wife would always wonder when he was going to retire, but he was our favorite HVAC service worker of all time! He always would give me a hard time about it, but when he would work on our HVAC system, I would always give him a nice tip. I would basically end up shoving the money in his pocket and have him be on his way. He was such a kind hearted individual, not unlike most of my friends that have been in my life. Now every year when I take a moment to think about all my friends who have passed away, I include everyone including our great HVAC worker who has been such a nice person in our lives. I always pour out a little bit of liquor for everyone in their remembrance! I do this every single year right before the new year, and I always hope that I don’t lose another loved one anytime soon. I usually come to tears when I think about all the loved ones I have lost, but I do the only thing I can, remember them!
