Yesterday I had a message on Facebook from a girl I went to high school with informing me that one of our former classmates, Mark, had passed away from colon cancer. It was a shock and I was saddened to hear the news. It had been over 40 years since we had set eyes on each other. When I started doing the class reunions several years ago I connected again with him over the reunion process and with Facebook. Then, in less than a couple of hours Sis called to tell me that one of my classmates lost her brother, Doug. Doug was the brother of a girl in my class and was in my brothers class. I knew him and his sister since the age of 5, and in fact they used to live next door to us for a bit. So sad, so very, very sad. They were very young, Mark, 55 (my age) and Doug, 53. That is scary too. I'm a bit that age!
Today, The Hubby and will also attend a funeral of a very sweet friend that lost her terrific battle with multiple challenges of cancer. Nancy was such a fabulous lady and will be missed by everyone whose life she touched. A forever smile on her face and her gentle laughter filling the air, the world has lost a treasure.
