Got a message today.
A very, very good friend died. He was diagnosed with lung cancer plus stomach cancer a few weeks ago. Now I have to drive 1,500 kilometers to attend his funeral; which I will… I could fly but I prefer to drive since that gives me time to reminisce about “the good times with him” while listening to the stereo. And if his wife likes – I would be honored to speak at the service.
Losing my first wife to Scleroderma more than 24 years ago put things into perspective for me. My recent MS diagnosis did not upset me; it just explained why my body had new limitations.
Don’t get me wrong, Ron was a good man & I was lucky to have him in my life. But life is a journey & we all have the same destination. He just beat me to the finish line…
