    Oh, gabriel - how horrible. I'm so sorry. You're absolutely correct. People should enjoy life on a daily basis. We never know when our time here will be over. I'll be keeping you and your co-workers in my thoughts and prayers.

Bob calls me about 8:00 last night to tell me that Chads younger sister called and they found him in bed dead. Sometime between Sunday and Monday morning he passed on. He was 40 years old 10 years younger than me, leaves behind a 10 yr old boy and an ex wife. Enjoy life people - it can end in a snap. Now begins the process of finding a replacement unless management decides to not. Needless to say I am a bit bummed out today.
    Oh Gabriel, I am so sorry. Prayers to you, his family and co-workers.

    You are absolutely correct, it can end in a snap, so enjoy life today. Don't put off stuff until later.

    When my friend died at 39, I learned that lesson. He enjoyed life so much, did so much that even at 39 while taken too young, he had had a very full, much enjoyed life. And he taught me to not worry about the little stuff and live for today because you never know.

    What a shocker! Hang in there, Paul

    Re: Talk about your troubles

    I'm so sorry Gabriel. How unexpected!
    We had a tenant here who was 36 and went to lay down one night and the next morning we all noticed his front door had been left open all night. The manager at the time went in to see if everything was ok and he was just there on the bed and died peacefully. We never got the actual reason for the death because obviously we aren't family. Sad, sad.....
    Yup, with donuts!!

    So very sorry Gabriel. It is a lesson to everyone to live every moment to it's fullest because you just don't know when the ride will be over.
