Missing Kathy

A while ago, I was really excited because I met up with an old friend. She came back into my life and once again, she enriched it. Then that rotten cancer came back into her life and this past Friday, Kathy left this world.

So, I am feeling sad and I know that I will miss her. I keep hearing that heart attacks are the biggest killer, but the majority of people I know that have died, die from cancer. And they are always the good people. In fact, I have adopted the philosophy that I had better be a really terrible person if I want to live a long life.

I find it hard to say goodbye. I am not afraid of dying, I just don't know what to say to the folks who are left behind. And in the last couple of months, three people have died who are connected, in some way, to my life. And that is pretty crappy.
