We were shocked to get the call yesterday afternoon.
A good friend's son was found dead in his car of an apparent heart attack.
He was only 27.
He had just started to get his life back on track after a very difficult period and had begun a steady job.
He was her only child.
My son is 34.
My dad died suddenly of a heart attack at age 57.
He died shaking my hand after my 25th birthday party.
I lost my wife 3 years ago to leukemia.
My wife lost her husband 7 years ago to a heart attack.
The death of a loved one almost too much to bear;
especially an untimely death.
But bear it we must.
