A sad day

I received a call this afternoon that Rick, one of my most key employees had passed away. The guy was 45, his life was really coming together...grandkid, new house, bought a Honda cruiser last summer...DEAD!
WTF...did I mention that Rick was only 45...been with us since '91. My prayers go out to his wife, daughter, and grand daughter as well as the rest of his family and friends.

For '05 I promised myself I would practice tolerance...so if people would quit being so STUPID I'll be more tolerant.

Re: Another "Day"

So sorry to hear of your friend's passing, Fumb. How did he die? Only 45 - that's awful.

Re: A Sad Day...

It is how the cookie crumbles in some peoples lives. Of all my cousins none have made it past 45 yrs of age with some passing away as a child, some in their teens, 20s & 30s. I'm the freak that is 73 yrs of ago & not a living relative left so my will goes to a h/gun shooting friend.

Remember all the others on the road are crazy & out to kill you.

Re: A Sad Day...

Fumb,
Sorry to hear about this. Life is just so unpredicatable....

Smitty,
No living relatives? That's sad too because I would guess that you would make one kick ass grandpa!! I can only hope to be swinging my leg across a bike at 73..
