Things that I will do my best to carry on in your honor: I will order salad with french fries on the side, with a straight face. I will drink my tea with too much milk. I will carry cookies in my coat pocket for all the dogs. I will love unconditionally. —
Eulogy for Shelagh Gordon, Feb 2012
I first read Shelagh Gordon’s story in March 22.
It really touched something deep within me.
About how a modest life can have a huge impact. On the people around them. On society.
As was written in the article, it made me question: “Do I love as deeply as Shelagh? Do I exult in the small pleasures of life the way she did? How do I want to be remembered?”.
I truly hope that I live a life as rich, warm and loving as Shelagh.
That I leave a legacy. And that I have touched people’s live as she did.
I tried to find a quote to sum up my feelings, but this Cold Play song “Green Eyes” seems more appropriate:
Honey you are a rock
Upon which I stand
And I come here to talk
I hope you understand
That green eyes
Yeah the spotlight, shines upon you
And how could anybody deny you
I came here with a load
And it feels so much lighter
Now I met you
