Just heard such sad news

A girl that I went to HS with just lost her husband yesterday. She is 32 I believe- I don't think he was much older. From what I heard I believe he had a heart attack.

I haven't seen or spoken to her since high school, we were not close but were on a sports team together. I cannot imagine what she must be going through. She has two little girls - maybe 2.5/3 yrs and I think the baby is not even 1 yet. How devastating.

I know it's cliche- but It really made me think how short life is and grateful I should be. I take my husband for granted sometimes but I would be an absolute mess without him. He is the glue that holds this family together. And about 5 minutes before I found out this news I was giving him shit for forgetting to do something before he went to work.

I just feel so terrible for her and her two little girls.

Sorry for the Debbie downer post. Just need to talk about it somewhere

  • @SunnySideUp26‌ Did you post about that here because I feel like I remember hearing it? Or maybe I just heard a similar situation. It's so unbelievably heartbreaking.

    I was just thinking about the girl more and more and realized that one of her best friends was murdered about 10 years ago. Like, WTAF?! The girl has suffered enough.

    Things like this just freak me out because it's so close to home and you kind of realize it could happen to anyone. They are super healthy people too. It's just awful.

    I lost my father when I was young so I have somewhat of an understanding of what this girl and her two babies have ahead of them (I was older then them though). It just breaks my heart.

    How terrible. I'm so sorry. My heart goes out to her and her babies right now. What a tragic loss to have to endure.

    We all have our days where we get cranky with our spouseover trivialshit...I know I certainly do. And then I always try to remind myself of how short life is and how important it is to try not to sweat the small stuff.

    Mh and I may drive each other crazy sometimes...but Idk what I'd do without him. I'd be a mess.

  • That's very sad. It really makes me freak out when I hear things like this because you never know, it could happen to you in an instant.

    A friend of mine has a close friend who has 2 kids very close in age to mine and just found out she has a progressive cancer. Just hearing about her situation makes me so sad. Her chances of surviving are 50/50 and her second LO isn't even a year old yet. It's heartbreaking.

    Thank you. I ask about her every chance I get. She just started chemo the week before Thanksgiving and will hopefully respond well to the treatment.

    It really messes with you when it is that close to home.
