My friend’s husband passed away from cancer yesterday afternoon. He was young. I feel devastated for her and her two kids. Totally devastated.
The only good thing that ever comes of such a terrible, immeasurably painful thing like this is that reminder of how precious the people you love are.
Petty arguments, resentments and grudges fade into total insignificance in the face of considering a loss so great. And that’s really the only thing I can leave you with today; a hope that you’ll simply hug the ones you love a little tighter tonight, make that overdue call to a friend, tell your mum you love her and forgive your brother.
Because life is short. Heart-breakingly so for some.
We’ll miss you N.
