Those were the strict instructions given to us by my dad. We were under no circumstances to have a stuffy funeral where everyone stood around with sad eyes. We were to rent a giant hall and have a massive party with everybody invited, loud music and drinks flowing. A party to go down in history… Continue reading A Celebration of Life
Love attracts love... a mantra that came to me when I needed to hear it most.
