The new year has begun and I have many resolutions as always, but one above all sticks out after losing a person whom I cared about the last day of 2012, make it count and make a difference in small and big ways. My family member whose funeral I attended yesterday was a WWII veteran, a fabulous doctor and a person who made a difference in the lives of so many. He didn’t suffer fools gladly and he respected hard work. He also believed that good works matter and so do I. Words to live by as the new year dawns.
