“In the end, these things matter most:
How well did you live?
How fully did you love?
How deeply did you let go”
I lost a friend to cancer this weekend. She leaves her husband and son, not much older than mine. She was a truly gifted artist, a sculptor who always dressed with flair. I never once heard her complain about the hand she had been dealt, and I will miss her. She lived well, loved fully, and in the end let go on her own terms.
