Most of us remember movies like Top Gun, Beverly Hills Cop II, Days of Thunder, and Enemy of the State, even though we may not know who directed them. Today, many who previously had no idea who directed these films heard the name Tony Scott in association with these hits for the first time ever.Sadly, they heard his name because Sunday he took his own life. He was battling, inoperable brain cancer.

This news made me stop and think how so many of us think money and fame would solve all our problems.

All the "if only" thoughts we all have from time to time are just that, thoughts and illusions.

Appreciate the people in your life and the things you have, and if you are not satisfied with your life only you can change things.

RIP Mr. Scott, and thanks for the memories...
