The Bucket List

Do you have a bucket list prepared? After watching the movie again last night while I was preparing to make a speech at my friend’s memorial service later today, I realized that we all need a bucket list. My friend, dEEp Menon, passed away two weeks ago at the age of 31. It was a freak accident where he fell, hit his head, and never regained consciousness.

dEEp was truly a great spirit and will best be remembered for his devilish smile, energetic personality, and his reluctance to ever call it a night.  So in order to honor him, I’m putting together a bucket list.  Not sure what is going to be on the list yet, but it will involve some travel with my kids, a few crazy hikes or bike rides, and perhaps attending a few world events like the Olympics or The World Cup.

I think it’s important to have a list and revisit it from time to time.  In the past two months I’ve lost two friends under the age of 40.  That’s a sign that we should all live every day to the fullest and never have any regrets about our past.

Cheers!  Rest in peace my friend.
