The most obvious thing people say when someone dies is how unimportant it makes the mundane tasks of daily living seem. Perhaps it is also the opposite. Perhaps it is those moments when we are so closely reminded of death that we realize how critically important those little tasks we perform each day really are. There important because they are a reflection of who we are and what we aspire to be. I too struggle with the same thoughts Kyle was struggling with when I first met him. I think about that delicate balance between quality of life and that quantity of things we allow into our lives. What Kyle lost in quantity, he made up for in quality. Kyle reminded me that there is good and bad in everything.
