Writing today's post from a sad place. I recently found out a guy I went to high school with died. Just like that. His wife found him in bed...dead. I have very few details, other than he had blood pressure issues, and he may have been using drugs. He may have had a heart attack. Which makes sense, since another friend died not even a year ago in eerily similar circumstances. And like my other friend, this one has young children as well. It's sad...so so sad.
I found out because someone had tagged him in a photo on Facebook. It was a digital scrapbooking kind of thing with his photo and "In Loving Memory" across the top. I saw it and said "What?" I clicked on his page and there I found all kinds of messages of love and condolence.
Made me wonder what happens to a Facebooker's account if it sits...never again to be logged into. Will it sit there, photos and memories, messages, as a permanent memorial?
As organizer of our class's FB group, I posted a message informing everyone. One woman replied and said he'd just friended her last week. Life really can change in the blink of an eye. Makes me reevaluate everything I do. Should I give up what I'm doing, my personal goals, to spend every waking moment with my kids? My husband can't do that. We need money to pay for our home and food. I need/want to contribute to our finances, too.
