Who Will Show Up At Your Memorial Service?
This Week's Simple Tip
I love to start my week off watching CBS Sunday Morning with Jane Pauley. An especially touching feature this week is the story about the passing of a man named Dennis Valstad of Ripon, Wisconsin. The former owner of the local dry cleaning business, David was a loner who thought few people cared enough to come to pay their respects when he died.
Dennis couldn't have been more wrong; 270 people showed their respect because of the endless kindness he showed throughout his life. Watch this short clip to see the gift each person received for attending. Too bad Dennis felt so alone and unloved while he was alive. :( Do you know anyone who might feel the same way?
