We never know when goodbye really will mean goodbye.  It's a reminder to love others while we have the chance.

"This cause of exploration and discovery is not an option we choose; it is a desire written in the human heart. We are that part of creation which seeks to understand all creation. We find the best among us, send them forth into unmapped darkness, and pray they will return. They go in peace for all mankind, and all mankind is in their debt. Yet, some explorers do not return. And the loss settles unfairly on a few." - President George W. Bush in Honor of the STS-107 Crew
