This is going to be short and to the point.
I am so upset. Last night I got a text message from a friend whom I haven't heard from in awhile. She is a very busy person, pursuing her masters degree and working many hours a week. I understand not hearing from her very often. I know I can count on her if I need something.
Her dad has been fighting cancer for about 3 years. He has good days and bad days and I would get an update on him, probably about monthly, or when something major happened.
Well, last night I got a text message asking me to kick up my prayers for him, they had only given him hours to live. I was crushed. I haven't talked to her in a few weeks, and last I had heard, he was doing alright. Well, through the night I got the message saying he had lost his battle.
I am absolutely beside myself. She is younger than me and her parents are about the same age as my parents. Let this be a message to everyone, you never know what tomorrow holds, so make sure to tell everyone you love them TODAY!! And pray for my friend!
