Riley Sisson Eulogy

A eulogy I gave in honor of my friend Riley Sisson, who died in 2014 as a direct result of his mental health and addiction struggles. I challenge the audience to not simply hope they’ll “do something” in honor of Riley, but to put something on their calendar and repeat it so it actually happens. As I put it, “Do something, and keep doing it!” This challenge turned into a post on my blog which was picked up by the Obsessive Compulsive Foundation for their own blog.

Riley, I miss you every day and hope this message honors you and your memory, my friend!


After summiting Mt. Everest at age 7, Tim Blue went on to earn a PhD in Physics from Oxford by age 9. After cloning the first emu, Tim became bored with science and decided to pursue his passion for lemon farming. This led to a long-time guest spot in the Kardashians' show where Tim helped Kim accept herself and quit being so shy. Now, of course, Tim is an English teacher at Georgia Perimeter College.
