Life is Short

I lost 2 classmates from High School this weekend. One ran in different crowds than us, but the other I knew pretty well. The girl I didn’t know as well committed suicide and I don’t know many more details. The woman I did know was a great friend and a strong woman. She’d been battling cancer for over a year and the prognosis had been sounding more positive, but she didn’t make it. My heart is heavy for her family and my old high school sweetheart and his family. We’d all been friends since we were about 15 or 16 and in college they hit it off after he and I broke up. We’ve all grown apart, but this still hits me hard. I have many memories of us all that still make me laugh, only now, the tears on my face aren’t from laughing too hard. I especially hurt for her boyfriend, who stood by her through all of it. She was only 27, make the most of your life, every day you have.
