I Lost a Friend Today

I lost a friend this morning. I believe she died from kidney failure due to her diabetes. She was just over 40 years old and leaves behind a husband and 2 teenage daughters. She was always so sweet and kind. Things like this doesn't make sense, but I keep having to remind myself that life is chaos on this pale blue dot in the universe. Hug the ones you love today and cherish them, because you never know what might happen.

“Why are we here?
Because we’re here...
Roll the Bones...
Roll the Bones...

Why does it happen?
Because it happens...
Roll the Bones...
Roll the Bones...”

--Neil Peart

Losing someone close to you hurts. Sometimes it's a mental pain and sometimes it's a physical pain. Just remember what it was about them that made you love them (Yes, friendship is s kind of love, too). Keep them in your memories of them. There's nothing else you can do. I'm sorry you have to go through this as I miss my wife as well.

Thank you and I’m sorry for your loss as well.

It is sad. Sorry for your loss. I know several people who are diabetic; I have one who is disabled living in my home. Terminally ill, mostly bedridden, my 22 year old's father was in a nursing home with no where else to go. Divorced for over 20 years we don't socialize much and I have a nurses aide/nurse for him. Health is the most precious commodity. Even estranged families still can assist someone as a friend.

Sorry for your loss, friends are hard to let go of. At 64 I didn't think I would be looking at a last man club situation, but I am. When i responded to the world trade center attack I was paired with fourteen other guys and worked twelve hour days for a month. We are down to two of us left, sudden death and sucicide. The two of us left were the oldest ones of the group. Even dealing in death it is never easy and goes not get easier no matter how long you live. Hold onto the memories and cherish them. They will be something to hold onto!

I'm 49 and I have just been diagnosed with diabetes. It's kind of scary.

My grandmother had diabetes and was able to fight it until she reached the age of 79.
