life is so fragile....

i haven't been very attentive here in the blogosphere this week
i've been in a funk ever since i received some tragic news
about a person i knew, not very well, but nonetheless, i knew him

it's been a few years since i last saw him
it was on his wedding day, just shy of six years ago

actually, it is his parents who i know much better
it was at their home i stayed the night before i got married
 it was at their community country club where i said "i do".
they have been good friends with my parents for years

on monday, their youngest son, 44 years old, collapsed at work 
and passed away from a massive heart attack
never a health issue prior to this incident

it really makes you stop and realize how fragile life really is....
