Yeah, I know that death is part of life. I know that every one of us will die. I realize that aside from perhaps prolonging the inevitable, there is nothing we can do to change things.
But I’m really tired of funerals, memorials, and celebrations of life. Not that I don’t want to honor those who are gone and show my love and respect for those who were left behind; I’m just tired of losing my family and friends. I’m tired of saying goodbye.
I’m adding another to this sad list. Another gone too soon, at age 51. A husband, a father, a brother, a friend. My friend.
I hate cancer.
I hate saying goodbye.
