Default Off to a Very Unexpected Funeral

Last night we received the news of someone we've known for the last 12 years passed away unexpectedly. He is the father of one of my son's classmates, a kid I know since the first grade and have known and shared quite closely with his parents ever since. They attended the same elementary school and both switched together in seventh grade to the same middle and high school. They were really close back when little kids and even stayed at home several times for sleepovers. His dad couldn't have been older than 55 and always looked in great shape and really healthy. He didn't smoke nor drink, other than an occasional beer. Feel really sad for his wife and even more for his son. He's a great kid graduating from high school in just a few months and won't be having his father there to see him. It wasn't long when we last shared a moment talking about the colleges that have admitted our kids and what were they to do with their lives. Hope he delivers the strength needed to continue his path

Rest in Peace Josť Cruz

I am sorry to learn about that. My condolences to his family.

It has happened on a couple of occasions at schools my children have attended (one where a young girl found her father, a widower, dead in bed on a school morning) and it does have an effect on the other students. It can be even worse when one of the students dies suddenly. Impacts can spread wide.

They always say that you mourn the death of a young person and celebrate the life for the old when they die....55 puts one in the middle somewhere.

I am a bit of an expert on how death can happen suddenly (been clincaly dead 6 times) despite leading a healthy lifestyle. I have learned to slow down and experience every day and to make the most of them when you can.

Really sorry to hear that another good man has passed away at such a young age and with a family having to deal with it. I hope they can get past their grief and continue their own journey quickly.
