I'm a little bummed tonight. I just learned that an acquaintance died last night. A little over a month ago her husband died after a very long illness. I knew them both fairly well, as they were some of the first folks I met after moving here. They owned a local eatery, a BBQ place that was a favorite of mine. He came into hospice shortly before he died, and his passing wasn't unexpected. But hers was. OK, she was a smoker with high blood pressure, but she still seemed essentially healthy. But a heart attack, followed by blood clots did their dirty work.
You just never know. You just ever know.
