Last week I said that my friend has cancer. Now he's in hospice. Yeah--two weeks within finding out he had cancer, he had a few surgeries, including on his brain because the cancer spread there, and now he's in the last stage of life.

One month ago I saw him, and he was healthy. Tonight I saw him and he's dying. So don't take life or other people for granted.

I'm sorry for your friend.
I've seen people struggle through the last moments of their lives - and that includes my aunt. Illnesses delineate the vulnerability - or invulnerability of life. However it is, just make the most of people around and ourselves while we still can.

Yeah, you see life differently when you see people dying.
