Life is fleeting and enjoy it. Hi your loved ones.

My best friend's dad passed away in his sleep a few days ago. He was not too old, probably 55? An unexpected tragedy for the holidays.

I wasn't close to him but my best friend is like my sister and we spent so much time together that I did see her dad a lot. My heart aches for my friend and I am at a loss of what to say r do. I mean, what can you say or do? Sorry seems so..empty and trite. My sorrow doesn't have words and my love for my best friend, especially now, is huge. And now I am tearing up dammit so I will stop.

Please, love those special to you in your life, and even those not as life is fleeting.


  1. I am so sorry for the loss of your friend's dad; you are right, 55 is not that old (I just turned 55 a few days ago) It does make one appreciate life and appreciate family. Honestly, saying I'm sorry is a good thing to say and just being there for her; letting her talk or not talk,letting her share memories of her dad, letting her cry, etc. That's the best we can do when someone is grieving the loss of someone they dearly loved.


  2. Oh that is sad! Tell J I said I'm so sorry! :-(
