“Let us all be remembered
For the lives we touched
For the people helped
For the wisdom we shared
For the stories we told
For the laughter we initiated
For the love we gave
For the affection we showed
For the good role models we were
For the communities we inspired
For the youth we guided
For the hungry we feed
For the needy we assisted
For the success we created
For the risk we took
For the world we changed
Let us write down our stories
Let us tell our experiences
Let us record our tales
Let us share our struggles
For our children
For our grandchildren
For generations to see
For generations to hear
As a source of hope
As a source of wisdom
As a source of guidance
As an example of our legacy
So what will you leave? “
I love you dad. You are leaving a big hole inside of me. Pinch me.. I still don’t believe it has happened.. You know when you feel that it’s not meant to be. Well - it wasn’t. Many people has felt that. It just wasn’t meant to be. It feels like a “bad joke”, like he was taken by accident. That wasn’t supposed to be him!!! He was rushing to finish his life-time work.. He was rushing to leave his legacy.. Dad - don’t worry.. Your family and your friends will now work hard to attempt to do that.. I love you and miss you very much..
Merry Christmas to everyone!!
Best wishes to you, your family and all other loved people!

I am not crazy about all the Quotes sites outthere - they are “junky”, have tons of popups and junk ads.
Here is my very favorite Famous Quotations - a brand new site - http://www.BestWiseWords.com
My favorite quotes:
- Napoleon: “As for me, to love you alone, to make you happy, to do nothing which would contradict your wishes, this is my destiny and the meaning of my life.”
- Mark Twain: “Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”

Restaurant.com Gives $30 Million in FREE Gift Certificates.
You help Feed It Forward™.
The gift of giving lifts spirits, spreads joy, and strengthens community. Restaurant.com
is beginning the holiday season by launching a giving site - www.Restaurant.com/FeedItForward
- stocked with $30 million in free restaurant gift certificates
. You can pass on 3 Free $10 Restaurant.com gift certificates
, every day until Christmas-as part of our initiative called, Feed It Forward™
Whatever the case, the process is pretty much the same. First you need a tree. Then you have to get it to actually stand up straight (note to amateurs… if your ceiling is only 8 feet tall, do not buy a 13 foot tree). When it comes time to set up your lights, don’t get frustrated! Just try to get the colors mixed right and the wires hidden, and leave it at that.
Christmas Depot has some great deals on lights if you are in the market.
Ornaments define the energy of a Christmas tree and many times, reflect the warmth and spirit of the people decorating it. Some of the best Christmas trees have a great mix of store-bought and homemade ornaments. For some great ideas on making your own ornaments, go to FamilyFun.com and check out some of their suggestions. For the other ornaments, check out RedEnvelope.com (We really like their Wish Ornament and their Baby’s First Christmas Ornament Kit).
Lastly, don’t forget the gifts! If you are buying for her, we recommend these Cashmere Gloves. If you’re buying for him, check out these Ballpark Cufflinks.
Some of our other favorite holiday shopping sites are SmartBargains, Overstock.com, and Amazon.
Check my special category for Christmas for other great stores and great deals.
Happy setting up and shopping to all..
Congratulations Mildred W. from Beaver, PA!!! She is a winner of my 1st 2008 Sweepstakes.
