Can We Talk...

It has been fantastic digging deeper into conversations with many. Reaching to the heart and soul of our existence. In these conversations, there has been many questions but today there are two that have come up.

1. How do we want to be remembered?

2. What is the one idea/concept I would like others to come away from my journey?

These are two profound questions that both could have a thesis written on them however they are both mutually exclusive topics.

How do we want to be remembered? The answer could be so complex and yet so simple. Just think if we all woke up and asked this question! Now, it would not change the world but just think how it would make everyday better.

For me, being remembered as a man who loved his family, was a good friend willing to lend a helping hand or listen. Always ready with a laugh and smile on his face. What you see is what you get. "Okanogan" Not perfect by no means. But loved life and lived it to it's fullest.

This is a wonderful exercise we all should do. It's a bit self serving but hey hopefully we won't call ourselves jerks. Answering this question, allows us to see where we have been, where we are today, and where we want to be tomorrow.

Peace, Love T

PS Question 2 to follow.

Terry and all. In 2007 our 16 year old daughter Ashley was taken away from us in one car accident. Shortly after I asked/needed Terry
to join me mountain biking up at Crystal MT. to get my soul closer to Ashley. He did not hesitate to join me as he knew I was deeply hurt from the loss of my daughter. Terry you are a true friend, thank you! Peace/Love Jeff.

Hope Terry will see this. Just got a call from Terry's wife regarding Terry's Illness. WOW. We have just return from a church service where they talked about hope and faith. Terry was always a good friend as we started in real estate together at Coldwell Banker RE in 1986. He always had a smile, looks like this naste illness has not taken that smile. I will certainly call and try to see Terry soon.

The positive energy that seems to reach out and touch all that you come in contact with. A good time around every corner and a willingness to share it with all those in your path. So glad that I was in that path.
