INVOLVEMENT vs COMMITMENT

The difference between involvement & commitment is like a ham-&-eggs breakfast:
the chicken is involved & the pig is committed.

REST IN PEACE, SONNY

22 Nov
 
Last night I found out a friend of mine had a massive heart attack (the first one, I believe) & died 2 days ago… in his early 40’s, leaving behind his wife, their baby & toddler, his siblings, dad, mothers, all of his friends & his family.
 
 Not only was Sonny a very meek ‘n mild, kind & generous person, but he was also a hardworking family man who loved the outdoors & was an avid fisherman, along with being the best mechanic I’ve ever had who used to spend many an hour diligently working on my  at minimal cost to me (mainly my old Chevi’s & Buick) back in the 80’s up until the past decade, & was also employed for several years at the repair shop across the street from me. 
 
Sonny’s father, Fred Amalfi, who I also had the chance to befriend & found to be of the same type of kind-hearted temperant & calibre as that of his son’s, and his wife, Marilyn, were well known real estate brokers in Hamilton for many years. Fred Amalfi served on the Board of Directors for the Hamilton-Burlington & District Estate Board during the time that I was employed there.

 
May God continue to bless & protect you, Sonny,
along with your children, family & friends.
You’ll be sorely missed by us all. 

 
 
I took the above photo of Sonny last summer at his best friend’s son’s birthday party.
It can also be found in The Family I’ve Been Friends With For Over 30 Years photo album.
 

I’ve picked a special candle that I feel would most resemble you, Sonny, & your fondness for the outdoors & fishing. I will always hold fond memories of you in my . May God protect you & keep you resting peacefully, my friend. – Edith Carolyn Küchen 

 

Other than feeling the need to fill you in on these saddening & tragic details about my friend, I hope you are all having a good weekend & most importantly, that you are feeling blessed & grateful all the way around
