J’s SMS gave me a jolt yesterday morning.
Someone he used to hang out with, someone I am acquainted with, has just passed away suddenly.
It was shocking news.
LL was a single mother with two sons, worked in the pharmaceutical industry, and had some health issues when she was younger. Despite that, the earned an MBA part time and seemed like a reasonably happy person.
Beyond that, I don’t really know her but it’s still a bolt from the blue to receive news like that first thing in the morning.
Makes you realize how fragile everything is.
LL, may you rest in peace. Hope you’re in a better place now.
