So I made the stuffing and it's good and the wife and I were listening to tunes and laughing because Spanish is her first language and I explained what the Kinks song Lola is talking about.

Then the phone rings.

It's my daughter in Calgary.

One of her best friends went to the doctor for a post-op checkup today and collapsed and died in the office. Same age, 22, as my daughter. This frailty of life just brings everything to a very real level sometimes. So while we comfort our daughter and send flowers to a family that were good friends to us while we lived in Calgary I want you all to go hug somebody special and tell them how you feel about them.

Because you just never know.

Yep-- I encountered something similar in my blog travels.

I'm so sorry Zona...thinking of you, your daughter and her friend's family.
 
Sending out prayers for your daughter and her friend's family.
 
what a shame! one of my buddies dropped dead of a heart at the ripe young age of 23 outside a victoria night club. only a month earlier I stayed with his family on Mt. Washington and skiied our asses off. I miss Kenny. that was almost 18 years ago.
