Be careful out there.
Today I recieved some very sad news. A close personal friend/ long time family friend died. I am unsure exactly what happened, but this is what I know. My friend, Fred, was at his wifes nieces house helping them finish up an addition to their house. They were supposed to finish up yesterday afternoon. Fred and his nephew-in-law were on scaffolding when something happened. Either the scaffolding broke or Fred collapsed. There is some belief that Fred may have had a heart attack, but is hard for me to believe because he was fairly young(around 45), was an avid hunter, stayed in above average shape, and didn't smoke. What ever happened caused to Fred fall on his head, cracking his skull and killing him instantly. Fred was very strong in his faith, was a faithful husband, and a great friend who ALWAYS acted happy to see you no matter what. I told you all of that to tell you this. Please don't take anything for granted. We are not guaranteed a tomorrow. Once you finish reading this. Go in there hug you mom, dad, brother, sister, husband, wife, boyfriend, girlfriend, son,daughter, whatever and tell them you love them because you may not get another chance.. I am the worlds worst at procrastinating, but this has been a wake up call for me. All those things that I say "well I'll just do it tomorrow" I will take a second look at. And WILL NOT go to bed angry at anyone that I care for. Guys, be careful out there. If you believe in prayer. Please pray for Fred's wife, she's alone now and is in bad health and will struggle to get through this.
