about seizing the moment and following your heart. He taught me to
appreciate the simple things-a walk in the woods, a fresh snowfall, a
nap in a shaft of winter sunlight. And as he grew old and achy, he
taught me about optimism in the face of adversity. Mostly, he taught me
about friendship and selflessness and, above all else, unwavering
