If I could die doing what I ABSOLUTELY loved doing then I wouldnt want anyone to cry for me. I would want you to celebrate my life and just be there for my family and let them know that I died doing what I ABSOLUTELY loved doing. Now I understand losing a life is a hard thing but this is a helluva lot better than reading about him dieing after a long battle with cancer or something like that. This man went out the way he wanted to go!!! Always remember that about him.
