All Beliefs are Welcome Here!
Last week I was alerted to the fact that a childhood friend of mine had passed away. I'd spoken to him several months ago. Not for a while though. We weren't overly close but it was still a shock to learn of his passing.
Then I found out a member of my family is having problems with their heart - I cannot say which family member for this person hates the internet and doesn't want their name published online. I have been very worried about this person.
Then on Tuesday night I was informed that another friend had lost his battle with cancer. I feel a great deal of empathy for his wife. I remember how awful it was to watch my grandfather suffer from cancer and I still tear up when I think about him today. I miss him a lot. So I really feel a lot of sadness for my friend who now must go on with her life without her dearly loved companion.
