Sadness

August 6, 2008

The husband of someone I care for very much just died suddenly of heart failure while jogging, leaving behind her and their two young sons. I cannot imagine the depth of her pain and loss, and it saddens me greatly.

    This same thing happened to one of my dearest childhood friends (and still one of my dearest buddies). His father, at the time 50, and a strapping ex NFL football player, went out for his daily jog and never came home. His heart failed from ventricular hypertrophy (postmortem diagnosis) during his jog. His wife and their two teenage sons, our family and the whole community were absolutely devastated. My heart goes out to your friends.

    There’s just no making sense of things like this.
