I don't usually do this, nor do I usually get emotional, but...could I ask for soothing thoughts for a friend who just lost her husband.
I've known this lady for 26 years, we went to school together and worked together, which is also where we met her husband who also worked with us.
This past weekend he went out mountain biking, and called to have her pick him up as he was short of breath. She proceeded to take him to the hospital, but he didn't make it.
He was 40. They have a 9 year old son as well.
I couldn't believe it when I found out. I'm not normally an emotional person (maybe its the pp hormones), but I cried for my friend.
Please pass your thoughts (and prayers, if you're into that) and strength to my friends.
