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.
