A Bucket List Limited to Notes to Loved Ones

A Bucket List Limited to Saying the Important Things.

I was thinking the other day about Bucket Lists.  One of the things I debate about is when and how you would say the hard/important things.  This is the story of a man injured in a wreck.  He was trapped for days (weeks) knowing he was dying.  The when to say those things was not an issue.  So all that was left was the how and what to say and to whom.  To have time and space to think that through and the urgency to act upon it…what was that like?  In the final analysis what do each of us need to say to the important people in our lives?  What love letters would I write?  What keeps us from saying it now?  What words stuck in my craw for years would suddenly become utterly inane?  My sympathy goes out to this family, may the man rest in peace, and may his parting words provide healing and comfort as the last kindness he could extend to those whom he loved.
