MOORESVILLE — How do you live like you are dying?

It's something most of us never want to think about, but the truth is we are all going to die someday. And the holidays can be especially tough when there is a family member missing from their place at the table.

Kieran O'Connor was a husband, father, grandfather, firefighter, flower enthusiast, storyteller, poet and lavender farmer. He will be remembered for how he lived.

We hope it inspires you like it inspired us to love life, love others and be instruments of peace in this world. And if you are hurting or mourning this holiday season, we hope this story helps bring you peace.

If you or someone you know is experiencing a loss this holiday season, feeling depressed, or need to talk to someone, call 211.
