    One of our own

    A young man in our company lost his life in a motor vehicle accident. His wife and son are recovering. He was 42 years young and had already beat cancer. He was a service writer with over 10yrs experience and was well respected even by technicians. He left a wife and kids, family farm. Never met the lad but from all I have heard he was a class act.
    We never know when our last day/hr/min will be. Make it count.

    That's the only way I can make myself understand it too Don, but still, it's a real tragedy when a young person goes.

    Sadness, a real tragedy. Hopefully he left his wife and family with good life-insurance.

    Thoughts and prayers...

    Easy on the addicts guys... unless you have been thru the struggle of addiction or had a family member suffer, just give thanks that you simply don't know... I don't want to detract from xcopterdoc's tragedy anymore than this.

    Xcopterdoc, so sorry for your loss. Prayers for the family and speedy recovery.
