  12. To state the obvious, this is a sad day for all the members of my family. The last several days have all been terribly sad and unfortunately no one expects that sadness to end soon or perhaps ever. Remarkable as it is, we do find ways to get beyond the pure sense of loss or any regrets now suffered or the void the passing of loved ones leaves. The few people who’s death left me with the greatest pain and void would always want me to go on with my life and while never forgetting them or our love; they wanted my life to be a celebration of our love and not a mourning of my loss. I realize how easy words like this are spit forth. I truly believe that it is part of the human being or soul to be unselfish and want our loved ones to continue on and enjoy the memories which happily keeps those we lost alive now and forever. Perhaps this quote may be beneficial – .I am always saddened by the death of a good person. It is from this sadness that a felling of gratitude emerges. I feel honored to have known them and blessed that their passing serves as a reminder to me that my time on this beautiful earth is limited and that I should seize the opportunity I have to forgive, share, explore and love. I can think of no greater way to honor the deceased than to live this way. Steve Maraboli That said, I choose to remember Tyler as a person who would not want me saddened by this loss but to honor him by pledging more love, more forgiveness, more appreciation of my life and the lives of the ones I love. I choose to believe this would be his desire and request. I choose to find a way to change what seems an irreconcilable pain to have benefit to all those who I love and those who also loved Tyler. Steve and Pam Crosby, Idaho
