“Tomorrow is never promised to anyone, young or old alike, and today may be the last chance you get to hold your loved one tight.

So if you are waiting for tomorrow why not do it today?

Hold your loved ones close and whisper in their ear.

Tell them how much you love them dear.

Take time to say I’m sorry, please forgive me, thank you or its okay.

And if tomorrow never comes you’ll have no regrets about today.”

Fly with the eagles dad.
