Life is short

Yesterday someone we know through our church died of a heart attack, at his nephews stag party. He was 42. Isnt that just tragic? He was fit and loved hill climbing. A heart attack? Such a shock. He had two teenage children. What a shock. I cant actually believe its true yet. Things like this sure drill home just how unpredictable life can be. Make the most of every day, tell your family and friends how much you love them. Im glad he had faith in God and will be up there in heaven. Im sad for his family but at least they can take comfort in the fact he is now with the God he devoted his life to. Pray for them...

That's so sad. It is a comfort to know that God is in control and I pray His comfort for you and for your friends family.

When a life is gone so quickly and s young we all question ourselves. How very difficult for his family and friends. It makes us all stop and think.

So very scary, my own Johnny had his first heart attack at age 33, heart disease is a silent killer. I'll put the family in my prayers tonight.

Oh, how sad for all of them. Thank God the children are older, but it won't be any easier. My first husband died of cancer when he was 41..I was alone with my three children, all under 9 yrs. old. It's a very difficult road for all concerned. The wife and children need prayers and support so much now and for a long time. Thanks for sharing this news, Cheryl. I'm putting them on my prayer list.

In my job in the hospital I see this happening at younger ages so much more often than it used to. My DH teases me about how often I tell him I love him but I never take anything for granted anymore.
