I don’t even know what to say. We’re barely middle-age. I’ve been through 3 bouts with cancer, and I’m only 40 years old. Two days ago I found out that my best friend from when I was a kid had a heart attack. He’s maybe 43 years old. And just minutes ago I found out that a very close friend of mine from college suffered a major stroke last night. He’s only 39! I also just found out that a friend of a friend died this morning in a car accident.
I don’t understand why these things are all happening to us at such a young age. I know, I know… these things don’t discriminate. But come on, 3 things within the course of 3 days?
