Just how completely awful. They've done everything... they even went out of state for experimental treatments not allowed in their home state. Just so sad...

Prayers being sent.
It is times like this that we remember what is important. And most of the things that distract us through are days are most definitely not important.

Lex says it way better than I do.

There is a clearing at the end of the path. I think, maybe, it is a good place. I'm gonna check it out some day.
Nobody has died.
5 ships, multiple shore commands........nobody died. LaSalle, Harry W Hill, Pluck, Esteem, Fresno, IUWG1, NCWG1, MESG1, COMUSNAVCENT/COMFIFTHFLT Sure the greats and great great have passed on but they were over a hundred.
No cancer
No killed while driving under the influence
No murders
No just dropped dead for no particular reason
No slain by a deer that jumped through the windshield
Nobody dies.
Never visited anybody in hospital outside the loser who faked a kidney problem in Korea. oh, and dot. Spent three days there with her while Scooter was thinking of making an entrance. Finally took a C-section.
Nobody dies. Just how weird is that? Computer just shut down for no particular reason and 2 hours later when I restarted this all came back. I was going to leave it be.

I'm having the weirdest life. 49, got pretty damned close to that clearing a couple of weeks ago. Heard the barking from the clearing. Fell down the stairs. Yeah, that most definitely left a mark.
Seriously, nobody ever died. How weird is that?

So sorry for your friend. It truly is a reminder that life is short. I just hope "I'm still running when the sand runs out." And I hope that for my kids as well...

SWMBO and I just lost a friend of long standing - we'd known this fellow 29 years, ever since we moved to Atlanta the first time, back in 1981. Pancreatic cancer carried him off at the age of 62... which seems awfully young when you're only five years younger.

His mother outlived him... and she is broken-hearted.

You gotta enjoy life while you can. Tomorrow is never guaranteed.
