    Gone Too Young

    I just found out one of my friends from grade school lost his son to brain cancer in early December. My heart breaks for my friends that they lost their son, but after reading his obituary, it is clear that he squeezed every minute out of his life and that he had the same love of life as his parents. We all knew each other pretty much throughout our school years. I knew his father from the time we were probably in kindergarten as we went to summer vacation bible school every year.
    I always wonder why God takes these young people in the prime of their lives. It makes me sad.

      fiddler, I know what you mean about hitting *like* - there really should be other options, or a choice of appropriate emojis...like on facebook?. but, I am taking it to mean. "I like that you posted." I really think that is what it means. Besides, you never have to worry - I could never be offended by anyone who uses a blue fitted booby as an avatar. ;-) Lol!

      Haha, Carool! You know, of course, that is supposed to be *blue FOOTED booby.* I should have edited before posting, darn it all! I was so excited to have this funny punch-line, I hit *send* before I proofed it (I hate when that happens) ;-)

      If we are dreaming about ways of improving this site, I would love to have an edit option. (not to mention spellcheck)
