Normally, I’d make a smart comment about the meme above, but I can’t. Not today.
Yesterday, I walked into work and saw some fliers hanging near the time clock. I thought it was an announcement for a picnic or baseball game or the like.
I was wrong. It was an obituary. For one of my coworkers.
It was for Dennis. I knew he’d been out sick, but I didn’t think it was serious. Apparently, he had a lung mass that was malignant and terminal.
He passed away peacefully, his family surrounding him, on Monday. He had just turned 74.
I’m broken. I’m utterly broken over this. The last time I saw him, he was fine. He was as sarcastic as ever. But now…
Honestly, I’m crying. It’s not fair. Life just isn’t fair. I know we can’t decide how or when we leave this life, but did the Universe have to choose this?
I think I’ll snuggle with my husband and our cat. Maybe things will be better with them.
To all my friends: I love you. Don’t forget that.
