Recognize this scene from “The Adventures of Tom Sawyer?”

“Here was a gorgeous triumph; they were missed; they were mourned; hearts were breaking on their account; tears were being shed; accusing memories of unkindnesses to these poor lost lads were rising up, and unavailing regrets and remorse were being indulged: and best of all, the departed were the talk of the whole town, and the envy of all the boys, as far as this dazzling notoriety was concerned. This was fine. It was worth being a pirate, after all.”

It comes from the scene when Tom and Huck stage their own funeral.

Today, they might have a celebration of life service.

A celebration of life service is a type of end-of-life ceremony where people come together to celebrate the unique life of the deceased. Celebrations of life are commonly held after physical remains have been cared for through burial or cremation.

I don’t want you to put me in the grave yet, but if I’m going to have a celebration of life service, I’d MUCH rather be there for the fun.

These days, every time I do a live event or just start a day, I’m very aware that this could be the last one.

Today, I’m alive.
Soon, I’ll be gone.
Soon, I’ll be forgotten.


Today I’ll make choices that will impact the world forever.

The small things count.

You just have to make the choice.

I don’t know how many events or even days I have left, but I’m determined to make this one a great one.

The only thing missing is YOU!
