I had a completely different post that I was working on today and just a few minutes ago I found out that a man that I worked with died last night from a massive heart attack. When I came to work for the company 4 years ago I met this man. He worked in our IT department. Now when you say that at my company, that’s over half the building, but still… This was the sweetest man you would have ever met. He always spoke to me in the halls, even after I left the AP department (where I actually worked with him) to come to my current department. He would walk past me heading to Accounting. And always asked how my cakes were doing and if I’d taken any more classes. In fact I used to take him a small piece from when I did take classes. And his granddaughters, they were the cutest thing! He and his wife would have his son(in law) and daughter(in law) bring their kids out at Halloween time to trick-or-treat.
Ok and this is a very discombobulated post I realize, but I think I’m still in shock. I just recently talked to him. It just makes you realize how short life really is and that it could end in a minute. And unfortunately the world doesn’t stop just because one person died. I mean I guess I can’t recall another time in the building in the 4 years I’ve worked here where someone has passed away, truthfully I’m not sure anyone has and if they have I guess I didn’t know them but wow, just wow.
I’m so sorry this is so dysfunctional. I’m just in shock. I guess my message from all this, tell those you love how much you love them because you never know when it’ll be the last chance you get to tell them.
