sad day

over on facebook i do most of my posting/looking around and chatting with friends...in my travels i have reconnected (or whatever) with old coworkers and high school peeps...it has been cool talking with people i havent seen in years.

its also been sad....

a guy i went to HS with and was friend(ly/s) with just let everyone know that his very young son died. from pictures i estimate that he wasnt much more than 2...I didnt want to be one of the many who were facebooking "what happened? whats wrong?" so i FB'd another friend who said they found their son in the middle of the night with no pulse..they were able to revive him but after 24 hours with no brain activity they decided to let him go and he died in their arms.


i'm 32. this is the 2nd child of a high school friend who has died in the last 6 months. at 32 i dont expect to be going to funerals for my friends...or my friends children...at 32 i expect to be attending the funeral for people in their 80's, not a 2 day old baby and a 2 year old.

i never really questioned or considered my own mortality as much as i have in the last 6 months.

so if you think of it, regardless of your spiritual orientation, light a candle or spare a thought for Faith and for Nic, if you are one who believes dead is dead, spare the thought or light the candle for their parents and siblings...if you are one who believes in heaven and all that, well, you know what to do...

my thoughts go out to Brian and his family....

There shall be a returning for thee.....
