Sad Venting about a sudden death
Was informed this morning of horrible news. My coworker died on vacation. He drowned in Costa Rica. This is heartbreaking. He was due to return tomorrow. I had everything ready for him in his folder for his clients tomorrow. I sent him an email this morning of the schedule for tomorrow so he would know his appointments start at 8:30am and not 9:00am like usual. A couple months ago he saw all my vitamin supplements on my desk in a bag and asked if it was okay to look through them with me. He gave me a lot of great advice. He also talked to me about a book I was reading which he also so on my desk called "The God Delusion". I let him borrow the book and when he returned it to me we discussed spirituality, religion, atheism & God. When I bought a car last year he told me he also drives an Audi and shared his love for the car brand. What I admired most about him was his authentic kindness and knowledge as a Psychiatrist.

It is really scary how our time here is limited and our days numbered. We don't know when and how but it will happen. I just want to tell everyone please reach out to people you love that you don't see much. I myself am guilty of this and know I need to see more of the people I love and care about more often because one day, someday I will die as will they and I want to be able to say I had as much time spent as I possibly could. Please don't take life for granted or the people in it that you love. Heart.

RE: Venting about a sudden death
My 47 yo brother went out like a light earlier this year. Cause of death: sudden cardiac arrest. Life is tenuous at best.

As it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
And I will show you something different from either
Your shadow at morning striding behind you
Or your shadow at evening rising to meet you;
I will show you fear in a handful of dust.

I have learned that there aren't many things that will hit you harder and in more surprising ways than the sudden death of someone you care about.

Very sorry for the loss, sounds like he was a good guy.

I'm not anti-social. I'm pro-solitude. Sleepy
