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.
    I am so sorry to hear that, Gabriel. Good advice about enjoying life while you have it.

    So the story gets even a bit stranger and the family must feel just awful. It turns out since he lived at his mothers, (I don't know who else lives there) They knew he was in the bedroom but assumed he wasn't feeling well and had called in to work. Upon arriving back at home he was still in bed and they got Bobs message wondering where Chad was so they went to check on him and that's when they found him about 4:00PM. The responders said he had been dead about 12 hours, and we don't know yet if an autopsy will be done..

    Thank you all for your kind words. I've never lost an employee like this, and until I came to this company 12 years ago I never had an employee quit for a lateral move, it was always for a better position, let alone having an employee die on me.

    How awful Gabriel--you will be in my thoughts and prayers.
    Well Father's Day was not the best around here; L's dad passed that afternoon. I was just glad that he got to stay at home until the last couple of weeks. The hospice was a God send for the family as they kept him comfortable and out of pain at the end. The funeral is tomorrow;
    I have found the Truth and it doesn't make sense.
