My dear friend's uncle died this morning of a sudden heart attack. Remembering his gentle, generous, fun-loving nature, I am just so sad. My heart aches for their family... for the children now without a father, for the wife who will wake up alone for the first time in 40+ years, for the brother who was also a best friend.
I am also pissed. Death feels so unfair. So shocking. So nonsensical. All I can do is ask "Why??"
In the absence of any enlightening answers, I will just say: tell your people you love them.
