November 12, 2008
Emru took his last breath just before 10 pm tonight. He died peacefully surrounded by his family.
He taught me how to live. He taught me how you are supposed to die.
Emru's name means RESPECT.
Emru, the person, also means compassion, learning, teaching, sharing, love, integrity, honesty, and inspiration.
He taught a lot of people a lot of things, but he spent 2008 teaching people how to reach out to one another in a whole new way. If you carry some of this forward, it will be a year even better spent.
Thank you for being part of his journey.
