A close friend just let us know they have an insurmountable health problem. To most of us, they are relatively young, and, as with most of us, expected years and years of tomorrows.

Tragically, that isn't in the cards for my friend. With poise and grace, he sent a short note explaining his condition, and this video. I thought the video a touching gift from an ailing friend:

I hope everyone on the forum enjoys this Holiday Season. Now I'm going to a little girl's Christmas band concert.

Sorry to learn about your friend. Loss is always hard to understand. His video was very touching and its easy to see where his heart truly is. I am an avid nature lover and have camped deep in the woods for long periods of time just to hear nothing but the sound of the woods. Those that don't know can never fully understand the feeling you get when you hear the sounds of nature at daybreak.

Kenny G is my all time favorite Sax player. I had Kenny G playing when my then girlfriend first came to my home for dinner. We've been married 13 years now, Id like to think it was Kenny G softly playing in the back ground that had a little to do with her now being my wife. That was 13 years ago. We still sit and drink wine to Kenny G.

It is always so very saddening when a young promising life is destined to be cut short. We all should learn to plan for the future, and live for today. NO ONE is guaranteed tomorrow.
Be strong for your friend. Help, even in the simplest ways, if you can.
By the way, the video was beautiful.
Drive carefully, and enjoy. W2

That video brings back happy memories of wilderness travels. Makes me want to pack up the camping gear and head for the mountains again before my time runs out.

One never knows what to say at times such as this. Words seem so inadequate.

When we are young and invincible, the end of life is unfathomably distant. The fact is, none of us will get out of this life alive, and as we grow older we think about that more. We see others around us our age or even younger falling by the way and wonder what it will be that finally takes us. I'm certainly not ready to go any time soon, and neither was our friend. But he's now dealing with the probability that his life will be much shorter than he had hoped. I can't imagine how difficult that must be.

Godspeed, Buddy.
