In lieu of flowers or memorials, Cricket's daughters request that you make a special effort to reach out to your loved ones and let them know just how much they mean to you. Tell them you love them. Ask for forgiveness and offer it as well. Show the same love to others that Jesus Christ has for you. James 4:14 states "Yet you do not know what your life will be like tomorrow. You are just a vapor that appears for a little while and then vanishes away." Live with no regrets and love like there is no tomorrow.
