R.I.P. Max Ainley

Postby Rick Wilson » Mon Sep 14, 2015 5:16 pm

I found out today that my friend and long time Uechika, Max Ainley has passed away.

I began conversing with Max over two decades ago here on the Uechi forums and a distance friendship formed.

Although an ocean kept us from meeting I learned a great deal from our written conversations and I truly enjoyed his posts.

I learned a great deal from my exchanges with, Max and will miss him greatly.

I know he was planning on visiting a dojo this Saturday to teach so this news has hit everyone out of the blue.

Yes, a very nice and friendly person over the forum's discussions as well.
When we are suddenly hit with the death of someone we knew and interacted with, it is the time to realize that the grim reaper's shadow walks with us every moment of a day and that life grows shorter every moment.

It is also sobering to remind ourselves of the ways we will be 'shortly' remembered one we are gone.

What image will we live behind?

I have just read the book 'The five secrets you must discover before you die'_

A great read:http://training.cuna.org/download/acuc_2012/061912_izzo.pdf

One of the most poignant observations: Why some people die happy...and others don't?

* Why happy people aren't afraid to go?
When you chose to live your values, work towards personal fulfillment, and connect with those around you, a life filled with contentment and purpose can be yours.

I think the worst part is to die and know you are disappearing brim full of regrets.

In Chapter nine you will read about 'preparing to die well'

And in chapter ten: 'A Final lesson'_
