No chance to say goodbye

Hubby just got off the phone with a friend who's cousin just passed away. We saw the announcement in the chuch bulletin. We didn't know this guy personally, but his cousin was hubby's coursemate at uni. So it was appropriate to give his coursemate a call to offer our condolences

It's another sad story of the sudden unexpected death of a very young person. He was only in his twenties. Apparently this young man met with a car accident, but he didn't have any major injuries. A few days later he had a very bad headache, so he took a couple of panadols and went to bed. The next morning, his mother went to his room to wake him up and found that he was no longer breathing.

Such a sad thing to happen. I think the saddest thing is to have a loved one taken away in such a sudden manner, without a chance for having any of those last lingering moments together.

Death is inevitable. But the most I would ask for if I had to lose a loved one is a chance to say goodbye. That would be what I would ask for.
