Life Cut Short

I know I have already posted today, but there is something else that has been weighing heavily on my mind ever since Friday and this is the first time I have had the opportunity to sit down and write about it. This past Friday my sister's boyfriend got the most awful news that anyone can recieve....his dad had died. I was so saddened by the news that even though I had never met him I cried! When I think about why I cried, this is what comes to mind. I cried for Nesto and his great loss, I cried for my sister and her loss and what they were both going to have to deal with in the coming weeks/months, and I cried for myself. Why would I be crying for myself?? Because ever since my dad got diagnosed with prostate cancer this is my biggest fear, that one day I will get that call! I can not imagine loosing a parent! It was tough enough when my aunt and my grandfather died! It is a fear I deal with almost on a daily basis! So when I heard this devestating news I was so overcome with grief for what Nesto and his siblings were going thorough and I cried! My heart goes out to Nesto, his family and my sister Jessica!! You are in my thoughts and prayers!!

  1. Hi Angie,
    Just though I would look in on your posts. I saw this and though, my gosh! I never had any idea your father had prostate cancer. You never shared that with me when we hung out. I am very sorry to hear that and I pray that he over comes this. My father had this as well and thankfully he ended up ok. I am sorry for your sisters loss as well. I think I had told you that I lost my mom 10 years ago last Jan and It still is very hard. Mostly because she will never know my kids or support me in thier upbringing. I can only believe that from heaven she is still being my mother and looking over us! I pray your father recovers from his illness. I can deffinatly understand your fear!
