I lost a dear friend yesterday

Yesterday morning I received a call letting me know a very close friend and coworker had died and his family had not been notified. I knew my friend would rather me tell them than a stranger. I've been trained to give death notification as a LEO but that had always been to a stranger.

Lost my buddy to a heart attack at age 45, wow. He didn't smoke, didnt drink excessively nor was over weight. I really don't understand this. It hurts everyone. Damn!

Tragic. I'm sorry for your loss and the family's. Way to man up and be the guy that told the family. Very well done.

I remember way back in my 30s I had a friend I bowled with who was 37. Tall, athletic, living the good life. Bowled with him one Tuesday and the next they told us he had died of a heart attack. More than any other single moment in my life that brought into stark relief how mortal we all are and how every single day is a gift that we should not waste.
