Death Steals in the Night

Thursday evening my long time co-worker and friend passed away. I was shocked and very emotional at how quickly he went. Over the years we experienced all the trials and tribulations related to living and pretty much went through them together. In later life, he straighten out and became very religious and had a very strong faith. I straighten out and wish I had the faith of him and others that I know. A warning to those males out there who choose to ignor pain...DON'T. See your doctor and ensure it is nothing. My friend had pain but did nothing about it for several months. He was diagnosised with non operable Mesothelioma in December. Had he gone to the doctor with the initial pain, he may have had a chance of surviving it. It has been a very long week filled with many ups and downs both professionally and personally. I am going to veg this weekend and try to get myself back on course. Stay safe out there.


  1. Birth and death. Between it are life which we get to live. How we do that are up to each of us, but if'n we can help others live they're life a little better, it also make ourselfs life a little better. Sounds to I.M. like you and yer friend helped make each others life better.

  2. Sorry to hear of the passing of your friend, it seems as we get older it becomes a much more frequent appearance. Be safe out there. Sam & Donna.
