I've known a lot of people to live and die in my time. All have left me with a different lasting impression.
Some are remembered only for how they died, and others are remembered for how they lived.
Joe Epps will always be remembered for how he lived. His passion for life was unequal.
With that irresistible laughter and electrifying smile of his, he was always the life of the party, but more importantly he made those around him feel good.
I can picture his smile right now as if he were sitting beside me and that's a wonderful way to be remembered — the ultimate way, really — remembered for your smile that still shines bright, even though you have moved on and now surf the best waves that heaven has to offer — and I'm pretty sure it's a left like Brooks Street, only better.
