Happy Birthday David.
I know that you would tell us all today - to get on with living. To do everything that you wanted and to be everything we want. Because that's what you always wanted to do and could not because of a horrible illness. It was all simply terrifying, and you my brave one, faced it all, until it simply suffocated you.
This surely is the lesson for us to learn - that life can be far too short. Time together is a blessing and never to be taken for granted. If you have something to do, go do it, someone to be, go be it and something to share - go share it.
You taught me how to love and how to give. And though there are times, when hiding for me feels easier, I will carry on, because that's my privilege. So, today I strive to grow, to reach, to love further and deeper. To find purpose to inspire, create AND also to giggle, live, see movies, laugh, walk on a beach and sing and sneak Oreo cookies when you think nobody is watching.
Raise the bar
Because you can
Because you have."
Always with love, David.
