How long would you have to be gone before someone noticed that you were missing? A couple of days, a week, a month? How about six years? The body of Pia Farrenkopf—a forty-nine-year-old woman from Pontiac, Michigan—was discovered sitting in her Jeep Liberty, parked in her garage last week. Authorities assume that Ms. Farrenkopf’s body had been in the garage since 2008, the year the plates on her Jeep had expired. And nobody really cared.
She was apparently estranged from her family and her neighbours said she travelled a lot. They hadn’t noticed that she wasn’t around, and her bills were paid automatically. It was only after her bank accounts were emptied and her home was repossessed that her body was found in the garage.
How sad it is that you could be dead for 6 years and have nobody in your life that cared enough to check.
Does your life make a difference to those around you? The time to make sure you will be missed is now. After all, it will be your choices today that will determine how you will be missed tomorrow.
In the beginning, God said “it is not good for man to be alone” and that is still true today. Have a great week and remember: To see what is really possible, you will have to attempt the impossible.
