lost my father-in-law and dear friend
« on: August 20, 2015, 11:18:41 PM »
please pray for our family my fil passed away suddenly at 60 yrs old. it happened about a month ago but i just couldnt bring myself to post it until now. we have spent at least 15 of the last 20 yrs working together almost everyday. he worked all day the day he died came home just like normal nap on the couch and about midnight had a massive heart attack they think. i guess thats the best way to go but it was a terrible shock. he is the man in my avatar. wish i had got a better pic.

Sorry to hear about him. And at such a young age too. Never know when things like that will happen. Work hard your whole life and plan for the future and it can be gone like that. How sad. Do things that you enjoy now and have fun doing it.
