My Heart Remembers Scotty

By Adam Pick on September 11, 2010

As difficult as the memories of today can be, I always end up smiling in Scotty’s memory – his bubbly laugh, constant high fives and ability to see the good in everything around him.

 

 

There will be a tomorrow that exists without me. And I know that. When that day arrives, I want this world to have seen greater beauty because I existed. I want my life to have meant something. I want this world to be brighter. I want this world to be happier. I want people to have smiled more and to have laughed more because I’ve spent time here. I want others to have seen and felt the uniqueness of my spirit. And if I accomplish that, when my soul does move on and my gift stays here and makes just one ripple, I will look down and I will smile. I will smile wide.

Thinking of you Scottie!

Dearest Adam,

You had better start smiling wide RIGHT NOW, in this moment!! I don’t know if you REALLY feel inside the HUGE benefit, service, support & empathy that you pass on to others every single day just here on your blog!!! NOT to mention your wonderful family & your “real time” job!!

Through the knowledge you share, continue to gather … you have made me for one … happier, healthier, able to do things I could not do before which brings me MANY smiles & laughs!!!

When I forwarded my blog story about hiking the Tetons, raising Guide Dog for the Blind puppies, and enjoying a “horsey” life, I introduced you to my friends & family as a caring, giving, supportive person willing to share your experiences with heart valve surgery, always researching the latest information, providing us with competent surgeons … all in your “free” time!! That you also have other employment & a young family. And that you are tireless in your quest to give support to heart valve surgery patients & their families.

Be proud!! You’ve made such a difference and you are so young!! Bless your friend Scotty. I read his story. 9/11 was horrific, I am so sorry you lost him that way.

Love to you Adam … you ARE making a difference!!
