Good advice to avoid regret

June 8, 2014 

I would like to thank my friend and letter writer Bob Anderson for his heartfelt letter addressing the loss of loved ones.

His message is as clear as the memories I have of my wife. If you love someone, tell them. Tell them every day. Do this so you don't spend the rest of your life wishing you had.
