A Picture of Someone/Something that has had the biggest impact on you (Ft. Drum Archive)

29 Feb

I’m doing this out of order, but I wanted to save this post for today. On February 28, 2003, the world lost three incredible people and heaven gained just a few more angels. I have encountered a decent amount of death and funerals in my life, but none have made quite the same impact that this one did. The three angels that so tragically lost their lives on that day, Brian Ellsworth, Micheal Heykoop, and Caitlyn Craig, were not ordinary individuals. I know that is said about a lot of people who have passed, but it is true. They were extraordinary. They touched so many lives, and continue to do so today. I know I am not alone when I can honestly say that they have changed my life. Loosing your friends in a terrible car crash at 15 years-old is not an easy thing to go through. Watching the entire class of ’06 become so transformed by this event, bonding in an unbreakable way, and 100% knowing that at the end of the day, any person in our class could call another at any point in their life, and they would be there for them, is something truly spectacular. Brian, Michael, and Caitlyn taught us that life is short. Sometimes way to short. They taught us that above all, love those around you. Be there for them. And don’t take any moment for granted. I will never understand why this had to happen to such GREAT people with such big hearts. But what I do know is that through all of this, many lives were touched and changed. I can only hope that I can continue to live my life to the fullest, in the way they so faithfully did. Even though they went to Heaven at 14 and 15-years old, they LIVED such incredible lives…Impacting SO many people. I can only hope that I can touch as many people in my lifetime.

 

 

 

Brian, Michael, and Caitlyn…know we love you endlessly. We miss you terribly. You will NEVER be forgotten. THANK YOU for showing us what it is like to live everday to the fullest, and leaving us with a lifetime of smiles~
