    There's a guy at work that I get along with pretty well. The guy is funny, cracks me up. He's pretty quiet and reserved about his private life though. I had just found out earlier this week (Monday/Tuesday) that he and his girlfriend, whom he adores, had gotten engaged. I walked up to him and gave him shit about it, how I was going to announce it over the intercom system during peak business hours, but to mention "...but don't tell anyone!" so they all knew it was to be a secret.

    His fiance is a 23 year old lady, very pretty, with two boys from an ex who was very abusive. She adores this guy at work. Her two boys LOVE my co-worker like they are his dad. They had all just moved in together last weekend or so.

    The girl died last night in my co-worker's arms, in their home, as he performed CPR on her.

    Tomorrow (Saturday) is his birthday.

    Apparently she felt sick and decided to go to bed early. He found her in bed, not breathing, called 911 and started CPR. She was pronounced dead by the time paramedics got there.

    Just like that, in a blink of an eye, your life can be destroyed by tragedy. Everyone at work was shook up by this news ... and my work is 250 people large. So please, whether it's a family member or that special someone in your life, take a moment to tell them you love them more than anything else in this world.

    Because like my buddy, you may not think twice about it, and never get the chance to tell them again.

    Dude, that's heart wrenching. Im sorry to hear that.

    There's been quite a few deaths of people very close to me in the last two or three years. Both family and friends. The remorse of my actions, or lack of still haunts me. Ive been trying to keep closer to my remaining family and dear ones because of it. You never know.

    The saddest part about this is, people wait until something like this happens to really start caring.


    People should treat everyone like they are someone's mother, father, brother, sister, friend, because they are one of those things to someone. You wouldn't want people to treat your family like shit so don't treat others like shit. If people are an asshole to you, smile and say hi instead of firing back, and see what they do.

    It shouldn't take a death to make people realize how important it is to be nice to each other and love each other. It should be a daily thing because you just never know when something will happen.

    KB, you just described my worst emotional fear. Death can happen so suddenly, and without rightful cause.

    My deepest condolences to your co-worker.
