My friend’s response to death

“It doesn’t matter how much money you have. It doesn’t matter how many times you go to the gym. When it gets you, you’re gone.”

That’s what my friend said when I talked to him today, his first day back at work since his brother died last week. His brother was like 43.
Earlier this summer, his brother found out that the lump on his foot was cancer. After some tests, he found out the cancer was in his bones… and all through his body. That was just six month ago.
He didn’t even know he had a problem before that.
Now, six months later, he’s gone.
It doesn’t matter how much money you have. It doesn’t matter how many times you go to the gym.
