22 is way to young to die
So haven't been on much this week. Got some horrible news on Monday. My husband is best friends with four brothers and the oldest of those boys son (Brian) passed away on Monday he was only 22 years old. He literaly dropped dead at work. His Aeorta(sp?) burst and they figure he was gone by the time he hit the floor. He was more than our friends son he was like a nephew to us. My husband was friends with these guys before the son was even born. Brian and his dad were like best friends rather than father and son and Bry's Dad was so devastated when we saw him on Monday. I can't even begin to imagine what he must be going through. I have lost my parents and all of my Grandparents and an aunt and 2 uncles mostly by the time I was 23 plus had a miss carriagebut I can not imagine losing a child at that age. Parents are not supposed to out live thier kids. Sorry I just needed to vent about this I am still in so much shock over Brian passing his funeral is tomorrow and I know it is going to be a long day. Also we normally spend christmas eve with this family as we are pretty much a part of the family too and it is going to be so hard this year.

Wow, that is rough, especially to be so unexpected. It makes one appreciate the fact that you have to value every single day.

A coworker of mine just lost her husband unexpectedly about three weeks ago. He died of a massive heart attack at the age of 54. No warning signs or anything. They were in the middle of putting up Christmas decorations and in the midst of going from one room to the next, he collapsed and died right in front of her. So very sad...

My heart goes out to all of you during this very difficult time.

There has been a "too young to die" now death in my community as well, the funeral was earlier this week.

Its rough. And yes, you do appreciate that you've got time to spend with your family.

But lots of questions and anger and just everything.

Prayers the funeral goes well. I imagine your presence will be a great blessing to the family.

Thanks guys it was a long day and Brians dad is doing so much better than he was on mon and Tues. This week he was going through a box of his stuff and found a note he had gotten from Brian thanking him for being such a great dad and he read it at the funeral. There were a lot of laughs and tears today but things will get better.
