As with many of our updates and postings. We show tribute for those individuals that are gone, but not forgotten. They have touched our lifes and hearts in there own special ways. It is hard to express your feelings in the lost of a love one, or someone that changed your life forever. For actors they will always be remembered by there contribution to the entertainment world, in which you can enjoy there work on video, films, and DVD's.

On April 7, 2005 I was read this poem at work. It brought meaning and tears to my eyes, and puts life in perspective, on what we have and don't have. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do here?


I read of a man who stood to speak at a funeral of a friend. He referred to the dates on her tombstone from the the end. He noted that first came her date with tears, but he said what mattered most of all was the dash between those years (1934-2005).

For that dash represents all the time that was spent alive on Earth...and now only those who loved them know what that little line is worth. For it matters not, how much we own; the cars...the house...the money, what matters is how we live and love, and how we spend our dash.

So think about this long and hard...are there things you'd like to change? For you never know how much time is left that can still be rearranged. If we could just slow down enough to consider what's true and real, and always try to understand the way other people feel. Be less quick to anger, and show appreciation more, and love the people in our lives like we've never loved before.

If we treat each other with respect, and more often wear a smile. Remembering that this special dash might last only a little while. So, when your eulogy's being read with you life's actions to rehash...would you be proud of the things they say about how you spent your dash?
