Some may recall, my dad passed away suddenly in March of this year. He just laid down to take a nap and never woke up. It hit my family (and me) hard. I just recieved my friend back home, Donnie, just lost his dad in much the same way. We aren't terribly close friends, but friends. We exchange hand-me-downs for our boys and get together occassionally when we go back home to visit, etc. I am not normally a terribly emotional person, but holy cow, this is tearing me up. I know the pain he and his wife are feeling, the shock, the "sudden-ness", etc. I'm assuming this is part of my own grieving process? Cause wow - this caught me off gaurd.
