So, how do you have a joyful life?

  • Touch other’s lives with your own. Take the time to reach out.

When they bury you, what will they bury?

Do your best, here on Earth, to ensure that they bury your voice, but not your message –  your hands, but not your good works – your heart, but not your love….
