“You expect to pass through this world but once. Any good, therefore, that you can do, or any kindness that you can show to any fellow creature, do it now. Do not defer nor neglect it, for you shall not pass this way again” Author Unknown
“The secret of life is contentment; if man is content with himself, then he holds the foundation necessary to share his limitless capacity for love with all humanity and ultimately be a success.” Joseph Patrick Hauck (High School yearbook quote)
“Be bold and courageous. When you look back on your life, you’ll regret the things you didn’t do more than the ones you did.” Life’s Instruction Book #346 (High School yearbook quote)
There is no doubt in my mind that you are the nicest person I’ve ever met. I’m not sure whether or not I’ll ever meet anyone as nice as you were. You always cheered me up when I was down. Just thinking of you made me happy. In some way, you still somehow manage to cheer me up.
I love and miss you so much. I wish there were more people like you in our world.
So many people are mean to me and put me down. You were never mean or put me down, and I am grateful for this. I’ll always love and miss your kindness, your generosity, everything about you. I’ll always treasure the moments we spent together, I’ll always treasure the memories I have of you. I don’t have many good memories of my life, the ones I have of you are the best. Now, as I look back upon my life, I’m glad I knew you. Your smile was contagious to me! I’ll forever remember you fondly. I don’t remember a single bad thing about you and that is the truth.
Joe, I love you. I always have and I always will. A place in my heart you will always and forever stay.
