Look Up (Now)

On Tuesday, just hours after Jane had passed, my family gathered to grieve together. After the mortuary came and took her body away, we decided to go have something to eat.

My daughter Amy ordered a Jones Cream soda, and as we were sitting there talking, her eyes widened, and she said, "Dad, you won't believe this."

She handed me the bottle cap, and on the inside of the cap were inscribed the words, "Look up (Now)."


Sometimes it's the little things in life that make you pause and appreciate the moment. We all looked up for a moment, and remembered.

Dear Doug and Children:
There are going to be quite a few incidents coming and going, not really far apart, and not really that near. It is like they are looking down upon us and help us when they can. These moments are a gift from G-d. Love and Prayers, Regina
