Another freakin' funeral

One of my parents' best friends died rather unexpectedly yesterday. He was 48 & leaves behind a wife & 18 year old daughter who is supposed to start college next week. The funeral is Thursday, the same day as Vid's graduation.

Rick went in to the hospital to have his esophagus removed due to cancer. This type of cancer is very random; he was a non-smoker, non-drinker, etc. Besides being a big guy, he was healthy. He went through radiation & was deemed cancer free but they wanted to take out his esophagus which had been burnt as a just in case measure. He went through the surgery fine, then ended up with several staph infections (including MRSA) before dying.

Just when things are starting to look up shit like this happens.

RIP Rick.
