    Default friend died today

    I have a friend who used to work with me, where we met. In late spring of last year she found out she had lung and bone cancer. They got all of the lung cancer but the bone cancer was too advanced.Sandy, the other girl I work with called this afternoon, Karen died today. She was 2 years older than I am. I'm still in a daze, Sandy and I were just talking about calling Karen and getting her to meet us for lunch. This was last week. She didn't tell us how bad she was. I don't know where I'm going with this just rambling. Sure makes you think about things.

    I'm so sorry.

    I lost a dear friend just before Christmas. It came without warning and really made me stop and reflect on my life.

    I know the lack of control really bothered me. I wanted to do something but didn't know what to do or say.

    Ramble away if that makes you feel better.

    It is always hard to loose a friend or loved one. Take the time to remember all the fun time you had together.

    People are only here on Earth for such a short time and we are the blessed ones for having had the chance to know one another.

    Peace be with you all.

    Life is so fragile and so fleeting. Your "rambling" is just your way of trying to make sense of this. I'm so sorry.
    Spiritual:
    "You are fearfully and wonderfully made." Please... respect life.

    Financial:
    Debt free, hoping to stay that way!

    That is really sad. I hope that Karen is out of pain and now in peace. I feel for you. Cancer is so awful.

    It sounds like it came in the way of such a shock to you, and I'm so sorry about your pain! Cancer is terrible! My prayers and thoughts are with you.
