I think it is interesting how a lot of us take our friends and family for granted as far as they will always be there. I also think that is why death takes us for a shock and a surprise for those that know, and love them.
Even though folks are sick, have grey hair, and start losing weight, we often think that that is part of the aging process. And then one day they are gone.
My husband's brother passed away very suddenly this week, and we knew he was sick, but his death was a shock nonetheless.
Rest, Roland and be at peace.
