My uncle, Dick Spencer, passed away suddenly yesterday. Dick was in good health, and there was no warning – although Dick has been taking heart meds for awhile (as many older folks do). His wife and he fully got ready for church. Dick showered and shaved and got on his shirt, tie and suit. They went out the front door and Dick said he didn’t feel too good. He sat down in a rocking chair they have on their front porch and asked Janean to go back and see whether he had locked the front door. His wife went back, and when she returned Dick was gone. She called the paramedics, but they could not revive him either. Dick was gone, almost instantly. He is survived by his beautiful wife and eight successful adult children with great families of their own.

Although unexpected to everyone, it was my uncle’s time to pass on. Death is a certainty for us all—it is not “if” but “when” we will die. The key principle is to live those moments you have so that there are no regrets at the end of it. Dick Spencer lived one of those lives, and he is an inspiration to us all: a Vietnam Veteran, successful entrepreneur (Cannon Towels), loving husband, and inspiring father. It is up to me and all of us to live such a life.
