How Would You Help a Family Face This Tragic Loss?

“Live Simply so Others Can Simply Live”

A young man walks into your door. He’s grief-stricken, teary eyed and hopeless. He just lost his Mom to cardiac arrest.

There isn’t anything in this world that could possibly hurt him more to lose.

He explains that he never really got to tell his mother how grateful he was for her… how much he loved her.

This deeply pains him.

It’s hard to say goodbye to the person who made you who you are today. It’s even harder to say goodbye to them when you don’t think they realize how much they’ve impacted your life.

Do me a favor and take 2 minutes out of your day to watch this video. It’s a tear-jerker, but it’s a real situation that you face everyday.

When you’re done watching it, leave a comment below that answers this question: How would you help him memorialize his Mother and show her how much he truly cared?
