How can this happen??

Monday, June 22, 2009

Last Sunday morning, at home with my grown daughter and 3 grandsons, my daughter's boyfriend had a massive heart attack and passed on. Paramedics did all they could to save him, but to no avail.

The young man was 34 years old. He'd had blood pressure problems for some time and refused to take his medication. He avoided going to see the doctor.

He was a very generous and caring man. He was considered a member of our family. My daughter and grandsons are struggling to go on. His family is very supportive of her, taking her in as family, too.

Please pray for them to find the strength to get thru this sad time.

Please learn from this. Take care of yourselves, no matter what your age. See your doctor regularly and get healthy. Please do all you can to keep your loved ones from having to go thru what we are.

    my condolences to you and yours. this was heartbreaking to read and my thoughts are with your family. my stepbrother who was 39 recently passed in the same way and we all thought the same thing. its shocking when someone so young is the victim of what is so often thought to be something that only happens to older adults.
