    He was 65 and just recently retired. A month before mandatory retirement he was diagnosed with terminal brain cancer. We could tell he was not in great shape many months before he left, but we couldn't know it was brain cancer. He was a truly great guy and the wife and I both loved him a lot. Feeling like stir-fried shit right now, and his awful luck makes agnosticism seem like the way to go.

    Ok, wah wah's on their way, I know. Let loose the Jackie laughing gifs, I know which forum this is. I can take it. Fuckin' onions.

    Sorry, my dad passed suddenly, a month before he was set to retire (after working OT and over nights his entire life). Was an instant wake up call for how short life is, and not to expect that you will make it to retirement

    No wah wahs - genuinely sorry for the loss of your friend. True friends are one of life's rare gifts -

    No one gets through this life without personally knowing the pain and sorrow of a friend or family member passing... When simple words fail, there is always music. This song has helped me in the past, in similar situations - i hope it is helpful to you and others...

    It's always so freaking shocking when someone you know and care for passes away. This is just awful for him and his family right around his dam retirement time too! Very sorry for your loss.
