Death is part of life. It just is. Death arrives all the time. Every day.
Some deaths are a blessing. Some are tragic and break our hearts – so much so that we wonder if our heart will ever heal.
Mostly, I think, it’s the senseless deaths and the sudden deaths that hurt the most and cut the deepest.
A Facebook update brought the news that a longtime colleague and friend died yesterday. Apparently, complications from a routine colonoscopy. Debbie was 43.
As I upload a You Tube video from the backseat of the car, in my son’s school parking lot, I’m reminded of how fragile life is, what a gift it is, and how our friends can touch us with the character of their lives.
I’ll post the video here later today probably. I shot it April 1 this year. It’s a Brooks & Dunn song, sung by a young man born with no eyes, and legs that don’t work.
