|Way too often, Rotarians pass from our world and many friends and fellow Rotarians are unaware of their passing. This article is intended to be a repository for those who have passed, to "Celebrate Their Life". A celebration of their family, life's experiences and accomplishments. To view those individuals or to add someone to the chronicles, click on this story heading or "More"
|To view those individuals we lost this past year, click on "Memories 2009-10" on the left side of this web page.
To submit additional individuals, email their life story and digital photo to D'Lisa Simmons
But you know, I would like to see a "Celebration of the Living", instead of a gathering of
death. A celebration where stories are told, eyes mist over, laughter
rings out; and as the speaker concludes his or her loving tribute, the
person they are honoring rises from their chair and gives them the
biggest bear hug! Wouldn't that be something!
The special person gets to hear the stories and come to the realization
that they have made a difference on this earth. And all this is done
well before they leave their earthly bodies and go into eternity. And
when the inevitable funeral finally comes, we can say good bye with the
knowledge that they knew exactly how people felt about them while they
were here on earth.
Starting today, share your feelings with those you love the most, your family, friends and fellow Rotarians.
