As the passing of legendary singer/songwriter Prince came to light, social media erupted with “gone too soon” and #PrinceRIP. Gone too soon, indeed, as Prince was only 57 years young.

It unfortunately serves as another reminder that our lives are delicate. We’re here one minute – gone the next, and no one is exempt from taking their final breath.

Every day is something to be cherished, and the fact that you are reading this is reason enough to be grateful. When your hourglass runs out of sand – that’s it. No mulligans. No do-overs.

Those that are lucky enough to pass peacefully, surrounded by family and friends, are just that – lucky. Too often people pass away without ever having the opportunity to say goodbye to those who loved them most.

So please, take a moment today and call someone you love. Better yet, stop in and say hello! Let them know how much they mean to you. Trust me, you’ll both be glad you did!
