A male co-worker has been sick for about 4 mos. He went to see the surgeon that did my surgery, He found out today that he has inoperable pancreatic cancer that has already spread to the liver. He is 58 years old. Why? Why? Why?

Please say a prayer for Ed.

    Because. That's it. Just because.
    A valuable lesson...live each day like it's your last...
    (no, sb, don't go painting yourself blue and yellow again....one visual is ENOUGH for a lifetime....hehehehehe)
    Ed is added to my list. Sigh.
    Hugs, Kathi

    Hi (((((Maureen))))),
    I'm so sorry to hear about your friend. Please don't torment yourself with the "why" or "why him and not me" question. The answer is never in our hands. No matter what your belief system, the grand order of things is not in our control, and some questions have no answers.
    Take consolation from all that you do; we can honor all our friends by the lives that we lead. Stay strong,
    Judy

    I'm constantly asking myself why? Why do some people suffer more than others in this life? I just don't understand, but Ed and Rosie are in my prayers.
