A Lasting Impression

Over the weekend, my wife and I attended the prayer service and funeral for our friend, Alan DeSilva. It was inspirational to see the number of lives Alan influenced in his 30 years on earth.

As part of the eulogy, we were reminded of a saying of Alan’s that he truly embodied; and it has remained with me. This expression has universal implications and I wanted to share it.

“They don’t care how much you know, until they know how much you care”

Make an effort. Be genuine. Connect. Care.

It makes a difference. And like Alan, you will have a positive impact on those around you.
