The very next minute...

Life is fragile beyond belief. I got an extremely upsetting phone call today at work from my mom telling me that a friend had passed away. I didn't believe her, felt sick to my stomach, and had to ask my mom again who had died... hoping that I had heard her wrong. I didn't. I can't even begin to describe the feelings that I felt at this time. It was the most shocking, unexpected moment I've experienced.

Death has always been something that I have never been able to grasp. I get so freaked out by the thought of a person being here on Earth, talking, laughing and enjoying life... and the very next minute, their spirit leaves their earthly body. What an incomprehensible concept.

My thoughts and prayers are with her sweet family at this time. I wish I could take away all of the pain that they are going through. Not that ANYONE deserves this, but her family has got to be the least deserving that I can think of.

We love you, Heather!
