RAY A Posted September 29, 2003 Share Posted September 29, 2003 No one wants to die and everyone would like to live forever. But for me I have to put things in perspective. this last weekend our next door neighbors son died from a fire when he was at college. He was attending West Virgina and he was only 20 years old. It was one of the most heart breaking things I ever had to go to. One of the nicest kids you ever want to meet. The preast said it right when he said you dont measure life by the number of years you spend here but what impact you made while you were here. There must of been 500 people that came to the viewing in three days. This 20 year old impacted alot of lives. Im 44, Have I lived long enough? NO!!! but life is very tempory and if I had A choice of god takeing me or one of my boys....I think you know what the answer to that is. SOme times I feel lucky to be in my position im in.. I will get a chance to say good bye. Not that im going anywere soon (I hope) I remember when My boys were young and the would get sick I would always say I wish it was me vs them. Well I got my wish. I have a frend that has colin cancer and he said you want to get a reality check go to a childrens hospital and you will stop feeling sorry for yourself real quick. DOnt mean yo bum anyone out just needed to vent a little. Thanks FOr listening. J.L. YOU WILL ALWAYS BE IN OUR HEARTS Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
