In July of this year I got word that my longtime friend Missy Whalen had been diagnosed with inoperable cancer. I’ve known Missy since grade school and she has always been like a sister to me. Her laugh was as infectious as anyone I’ve ever known…and I absolutely loved making her laugh.
Missy died on November 26th, the day before Thanksgiving. She was 43 years old.
I was asked on behalf of the family to write and read the eulogy. It was one of the most humbling and difficult things I’ve ever done….and one of the greatest honors of my life.
I’ve included a link to the eulogy below along with several thoughts from my experience over the last couple of weeks.
I’ll be honest. I don’t exactly know what you’ll take away from my experience, but I promise you this: If you take some time out of your busy day today…or save this post to read later…you will walk away with some perspective you didn’t have before.
