Life is short

Hi Everyone
I'm sure you can tell by the title that this is not going to be a happy post. One of my friends from childhood passed away on Saturday. He lived on the farm across the street from ours and I spent many a day there during my childhood. His sister was one of my best friends. His funeral is tomorrow. He passed out in the milkhouse last week and after several surgeries, succumbed to an aneurysm. He was 55 years old. Too young. Life is too short. He leaves behind many who are going to miss him tremendously. As I have said before in many of my posts, we need to savor every day, every hour we have here. Only the Lord knows our final hour. It was Dave's hour. So, I will call my children today and tell them I love them again. I will give my husband an extra long hug to let him know how much he means to me. I will call my parents and tell them I love them. And I am telling all of you how much you mean to me. Your support of me and my family has made a big difference in our lives. And remember "seize the day".
