I have been rude. Or have I?
Hello TP, 

I just wanted to share something with you. It has nothing to do with whats going on here. It's simply between you and I.

"I reached the pinnacle of success in the business world. In some others' eyes, my life is the epitome of success. However, aside from work, I have little joy. In the end, my wealth is only a fact of life that I am accustomed to. At this moment, lying on my bed and recalling my life, I realize that all the recognition and wealth I took so much pride in have paled and become meaningless in the face of my death.

You can employ someone to drive the car for you, make money for you but you cannot have someone bear your sickeness for you. Material things lost can be found or replaced. But there is one thing that can never be found when it's lost - Life. Whichever stage in life you are in right now, with time, you will face the day when the curtain comes down.

Treasure love for your family, love for your spouse, love for your friends. Treat yourself well and cherish others. As we grow older, and hopefully wiser, we realize that $300 or a $30 watch both tell the same time. You will realize that your true inner happiness does not come from the material things of this world. Whether you fly first class or economy, if the plane goes down - you go down with it.

Therefore, I hope you realize when you have mates, buddies and old friends, brothers and sisters, who you chat with, laugh with, talk with, have sing songs with, talk about north-south-east-west or heaven and earth, that is true happiness! DON'T EDUCATE YOUR CHILDREN TO BE RICH. EDUCATE THEM TO BE HAPPY. SO WHEN THEY GROW UP THEY WILL KNOW THE VALUE OF THINGS AND NOT THE PRICE!  Eat your food as your medicine, otherwise you have to eat your medicine as your food.

The one who loves you will never leave you for another because, even if there are 100 reasons to give up, he or she will find a reason to hold on. There is a big difference between a human being and being human. Only a few really understand it. YOU ARE LOVED WHEN YOU ARE BORN. YOU WILL BE LOVED WHEN YOU DIE. In between you have to manage.

The six best doctors in the world are sunlight, rest, exercise, diet, self-confidence and FRIENDS. Maintain them in all stages and enjoy a healthy life."

I read what you said about being the last good member of the fleet and was really moved. To know that you thought so low of me. Attilio is a member is he not? James is a member is he not? All brilliant men. We always heard you out. You're smart, funny, and were valued. In any case Admiral, yes, Admiral, as I didn't think any less of you, not as a Commodore, or a Captain as you requested to be. What was that about anyway? I guess I'll never know. I'd like you to hear a song as I bid you farewell old friend. 

Ludovico Einaudi - Primavera 

Primavera means Spring as in the season. May the wind be always in your favor Admiral... *Salute*
