Sad Day

I just learned that someone I knew in high school recently passed away.

She was a few months older than me, and we dated a little in high school.

She died from breast cancer.

I have not kept in touch with my high school friends, but I will miss her dearly.

Honestly, I am in shock, even though I haven't talked to her in decades.

She was only 43 years old.

So sad.  :((

Sorry for your loss. I’ve experienced similar when a close friend committed suicide. Looking back there were signs but at the time nobody really put it together. Just a reminder that every day is a gift, treat it like your last.

Sorry to hear that. It hits harder when it’s someone the same age or younger then us… Happened to me a couple times already. The bad news is it happens more and more often as we age.

As Relampago says, each new day is a gift we should enjoy as the last one.

Sorry for your loss.

I’ve had some close friends pass recently and it is a reinforcement to the notion of thinking I should stop “saving” things and start living the life I want to live. I’v been so conservative for so many years, hoping to set things up so I can have a good retirement and not be worried about stuff. I think I still made the good play, but I am ready to start going on adventures and living my life.

I recently decided to focus on things I love (flashlights are high on that list apparently,) and really divest myself of the things I don’t care about anymore: cars, collectibles, stuff that is special, but really i don’t use them or care for. I’m most importantly starting to remove routine out of my life, and getting comfortable with the thought of not knowing what is going to happen next, that has been hard.

Sorry to hear about your loss.
It’s always sad. but. we all do it, some sooner than others. Just b4 my 50th, I decided I’d had enough.
Living by myself on my boat was a great life. Working 12 hr shifts 14 on 7 off (days)
all yr for decades.
Lotsa money BUT
Packed gear in boat. Sailed round for Aust for 12 months or so. (did the lap)

Best thing I ever did. revitalised every part of me. Several new Girl friends (2 together in Perth).

Went back to work for a few yrs after that but only part time. Dragline relief pays good bickies.

You never know.

Happened to me too. Close friend. Straight A student in high school. He’s my gaming bro and my teacher.
Highschool ended, we went on separate ways. I finished college and started working, he studied medicine and out of nowhere decided to suicide.

Probably my saddest feeling was not knowing why he did that but he was a cheerful guy

May she rest in peace…

Each of us has an expiration date and we don’t know what that date is, but knowing that fact (or even the date) doesn’t make things any easier when we see someone go that we cared about.

The one thing that makes it easier for me is, if I know they had faith in the Savior and were headed to the better place. Because then I know I’ll see them again, and we’ll rejoice together.
