Hello, all. The holidays are here again. It’s the season to spend time with our friends and families, to take a little break from the daily grind and remind us of what’s it’s really all about – family.
With that in mind, I want to tell you about a decomposition cleanup we did recently. (I know how it sounds, but just trust me and keep reading.)
We received a call from a lady whose father had passed and went undiscovered for over a week and she was in need of our services.
I arrived at her father’s house and met with the client. As she led me to the scene, she told me a little bit about her father and what she said was quite saddening. Apparently, there was a big blow-up between the two of them five years ago and they have never spoken since. Now he’s gone and so is any chance of reconciliation.
Death does not discriminate and he doesn’t care what time of the year it is or what you have going on in your life. He can sneak up on you when and how you least suspect it. It’s for that reason that we should cherish the time we have with our loved ones and not spend it being mad at them. We never know when he will strike and you may never forgive yourself if you find yourself in a similar situation as our client.
Hopefully you’re not in the midst of an upset with someone you care about, but if you are, please take the time to sort it out. If you can’t resolve it, squash it and move on, even if you have to agree to disagree. There’s very little that can permanently drive people apart and we shouldn’t let everything else get in the way of being a part of each others’ lives.
From our family to yours, have a pleasant and safe holiday season.
