What happens to all the ideas, the concepts…the magical one-of-a-kind constructs that inhabit the brains and souls of creative people when they shed this earth suit and take that mysterious adventure we call death? Life’s greatest enigma awaits us all, and when a creative departs, it does, indeed, leave a hole. We are the better for having known the person, but less that their individual spark is not readily visible to us. Last week, a heart attack took away DAN CUPAK. The son of Omaha, Nebraska, his marketing career took him to Florida where he exhibited his creative spark for Hearst’s WPBF in Palm Beach. He piloted marketing as Promotion Director for NBC in Charlotte as well as directed news promotion for WBTV, CBS in the Queen City. Like many of us, the lure of television was rather like a siren song and he struck out on his own to do, as he himself listed, ‘marketing stuff’ under his own banner. So very smart…he studied Physics at the University of Iowa. Sending out peace to his family and to LAURIE LAMASTER who shared this news.
Think About This: “As far as I can see, grief will never truly end. It may become softer over time, more gentle, and some days will feel sharp. But grief will last as long as love does – forever. It’s simply the way the absence of your loved one manifests in your heart. A deep longing, accompanied by the deepest love. Some days, the heavy fog may return, and the next day, it may recede, once again. It’s all an ebb and flow, a constant dance of sorrow and joy, pain and sweet love.” ~ Scribbles & Crumbs
