After Anth died I found a quote that really hit home:
"When you are sorrowful look again in your heart, and you shall see that in truth, you are weeping for that which has been your delight."
- Kahlil Gibran
"When you are sorrowful look again in your heart, and you shall see that in truth, you are weeping for that which has been your delight." (Kahlil Gibran)
The time since Anths death has been excruciatingly painful for many. I think this is especially true because we miss Anth's unique personality. Anth was truely one of a kind. Someone who marched to the beat of his own drummer for sure, and rarely cared about what others thought of him. Anth had a strong ability to make people laugh. His humor was off the wall but enjoyed by everyone. Anth could talk to anyone, anywhere and get a chuckle out of them. Anth's personality was magnetic and drew people in. His laugh was hardy and contageous, his smile was infectious. I think that Anth would want to be remembered as the fun guy at the bar, the crazy karaoke singer, the competitive beer pong player, the football enthusiast, an all night poker buddy, a clown to cheer you up and to listen when you are down, a loyal friend, and a loving nephew, cousin, brother, grandson, and son. It is so hard to go on without Anth sometimes, but we all need to create more good times and fun memories so that when we finally get to see Anth again we can get a chuckle out of him by sharing all the adventures we continued to have. That's how he would want it.
"As long as I can I will look at this world for both of us. As long as I can I will laugh with the birds, I will sing with the flowers, I will pray to the stars, for both of us." (Sasha)
I love you doofy and you will always be a part of me.
