This Friday would have been my brother's birthday. We lost him to leukemia when he was 13 years old. As I sat down to think about how I'd honor his life this year, I realized that it would be a good time to share a few ideas so that other people could honor their lost loved ones as well.
So that's what this week's vlog is all about: How to Honor a Lost Loved One Through Service.
I miss my brother each and every day. I love feeling connected to him specifically on his birthdays. I love being able to celebrate him through service. This year I am going to donate blood at the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Hospital and ask my friends and family to join the Be the Match community in his honor.
How do you honor someone that you've lost? I'd love to hear all bout it.
Losing someone that you love is never easy. It's wonderful to be able to find a way through service to honor their time on the planet.
