Letter to the Editor: A second chance at life; do bigger, better things


To the Editor:

Having feared death all my life, now that I am confronted with it daily, I no longer fear it. I fear only that the period leading up to my death will have been a waste of time, and the loved ones I will leave behind will be full of emptiness.

Had I during my life feared death as little as I do now, I would have dared bigger and better things.

Life can be so fleeting, so I live every day like it will be my last. I wanted to do something amazing and own it before I go.

That’s my philosophy, since I was declared to be terminally ill and wouldn’t make 90 days. The Lord has given me a second chance at life, so it’s all about giving back, repayig God for all his grace and compassion.

I write this because our passion for life and giving back has angered some here in town. So we declare in writing our sincerest apologies to all those we have offended. “2 Corinthians 12:10 For the sake of Christ then I am content with weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions and calamities. For when I am weak, then I am strong.”

Pat & Mary Gamache,
