Life is fragile
[Image: 592182.png]

An old friend from high school was found by her 11 year old daughter. She just didn't wake up...
She was 40. She was vibrant, full of life; a bohemian and lover of nature, music and world travel.

I am heartbroken for her family.

I don't know the point of this, just that life can be so ridiculous. Sad

Sorry.

And that poor child...

I doesn't matter how someone loses a loved one, family, friend or co worker, it is never easy. I lost my mom in March due to surgery complications. Unfortunately it happens 50 to 60 million humans per year worldwide on average of all ages. The best anyone can do to cope is to feel your emotions and talk to people, and when you feel better remember the good times. And hug your loved ones today and always let them know you love them.

It has to be especially hard on a kid to witness that. I am sorry your friend and the child went through that.

And I hope the daughter has loving, capable people to care for her.

RE: Life is fragile
They are a very close family, so I know her daughter will get a lot of support.

Hug your loved ones tight, tell them you love them!

RE: Life is fragile
Late last November, a good friend of mine was diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer. He's not local but I see him a few times a year when he's in New York. He was in last year mid-September. We met and had a few beers, had some wings, and then parted ways until next time. He went home to Michigan and a week or so later picked up what what he thought was a stomach flu. After it didn't go away after 2 weeks, the doctors did a colonoscopy. And that's when they found the first tumor. It took another few weeks to find the rest of it. His liver, his lungs, his lymph system ... really just everywhere.

I went to see him out in Detroit first week in June and he didn't look particularly good to me. When I got home I told my wife I thought he would make his 52nd birthday this October, but I doubted he would make 53. That was around June 4 or thereabouts.

Right now, I don't think he's going to make 52. I'm flying out to Detroit next Saturday and coming back on Sunday. I'll spend the day in the hospital, and I guess I'll make my goodbye to my friend. He doesn't have much longer. In the past 2 weeks his condition has spiraled completely out of control. He's from Scotland and his family has been flying in, which is good.

Life is very random and not at all fair. And all I can think is there, but for the grace of random dumb luck, go I. I have no idea why my friend suddenly and without any previous symptoms ended up with stage 4 colon cancer and I'm healthy and cancer free. We have similar lifestyles, similar diets, etc. So, why him and not me? Or someone else? It just is, I guess.

Life isn't fair and cancer fucking sucks is all I can really say.
