I just found out a friend passed away. The good part of this story (part of which I had not remembered) was that my friend's wife saw me wearing a cute fishing tee shirt and she complimented me on. I gave her the tee shirt. What I found out today was that the tee shirt was for her son (an avid fisherman) that she gave the tee shirt too. Her husband told me how much that meant to her and how much he thought of the gift I had to smile. My eyes are a little wet right now so please forgive me. I would like to wish his family my condolences. It is very strange how a little offering can make someones day.

Sometimes, it's the small things that make the biggest impressions. I'm glad that you have a happy memory about it.

Joe's post in "I am not a genius"......very touching



Lefty, may I offer my condolences to you and your family, as well as your friends family. I'm sure that the fond memories and smiles from you and his loved ones is exactly what makes him know that his time here on earth was not at all wasted!
