Non Omnis Moriar

Attended the funeral of my friend and colleague's husband today.  He was 28. 

He'd had a heart transplant when he was 14 and had lived his life as one granted a second chance.  He and his loved ones always lived with the specter of his condition, but he never let it make him bitter or slow him down.  You would have never known there was anything wrong if he didn't tell you.  His death was sudden, and though not entirely unexpected, has come as quite a shock. 

My heart hurts for his little girls, 6 and 2, who are left without their Daddy and his wife, a fellow family medicine resident, left to carry on without him.

I'm so sorry. It is always hard to lose someone--even when you knew they were ill--but death is always, always a shock. It's worse when it's someone so young, with such a bright future ahead of him. Life is frequently incredibly, incredibly unfair. :-(
