A dying man holding his best friend.  He lived homeless in Iowa with his dog in a car.  When he became terminally ill and placed in hospice, his only request was to hold his dog one last time before passing on.  Two souls quietly saying their goodbyes.

The picture leaves me without much to say.  To read the whole story, click here.  And make sure you view the picture gallery for more shots of this precious moment.

This picture shows us our mortality.  It shows you there is a better world out there.  So turn off the TV.  Get off the Facebook.  Shut down the computer.    Go outside with your dog, cat, partner, children – whoever, and breathe deep the life that surrounds you.  Go forward and Live and Love.  It may be your last chance before Paradise.

Seriously…being angry and snarky doesn’t cut it any longer.

Death is not the greatest loss in life.  The greatest loss is what dies inside us while we live.  ~Norman Cousins
