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.
