View Full Version : Life A good man is gone
12-03-2010, 07:16 PM
A casual friend of mine died the night before last. He was my age - 39, and our boys are good friends and go to school together. I got a call from his wifes best friend last night that he was gone. No known illness - just never woke up. Maybe a heart attack.
This hits home for me - I lost my mom when I was 13 and I've carried that with me my whole life. His daughter is 13 and his son is 10. When I'm alone and I think of his kids I lose it. :deevee:
Anyway, I just wanted to get it off my chest.

To anyone who loses a father at a young age, my heart goes out to them.
At least at 13 and 10 respectively, (and 13, in your case) they did get to know him a little and learn from him.
I lost my dad at 4 years old, and still regret to this day, all these years later, that I didn't get a chance to know him.
Treasure the memories that you have of your father, and pass that on to his children if the opportunity presents itself to do so.

39 wow, and I hit 38 in a couple of days. It makes you wonder, there's nothing you can do when your time comes.

Condolences and prayers to the family. Take some time to tell your kids you love them.

Unbelievable. I plan to be 39 for at least a decade or two. But you never know when your time is up.
