Earlier today, after a valiant battle against cancer, Boopy's mom, Judy, passed away. I feel extremely lucky to have had the chance to meet her; she was a wonderful person. I was grateful to have been able to visit her this past weekend and bear witness to just how many lives she touched.
Through the stories I've heard and the pictures I've seen (oh boy, are there pictures), I'm more than certain she lived a life full of adventure, excitement, love, laughs, drama, (not necessarily in that order) all in the while making time for family, friends, and a wine cooler or two.
And even though I will still mourn, I will follow Judy's wishes to celebrate her life. She may be gone, but she lives on in our memories.
