Nothing hurts worse than a deep regret and wish that you had done things differently. That you had made more effort, found the time somewhere before they were gone.
Make the time. Make the effort. Do it before they’re gone and the person, the stories, and the memories all fade away.
“The bitterest tears shed over graves are for words left unsaid and deeds left undone.” — Harriet Beecher Stowe
“Make the most of your regrets; never smother your sorrow, but tend and cherish it till it comes to have a separate and integral interest. To regret deeply is to live afresh.” — Henry David Thoreau
