what happened?

I learned last week of the death of a high school classmate.

We were friends on Facebook, and I hadn’t seen anything from him for a while. Then my news feed displayed a post to his timeline referring to him in the past tense. Hu?

I went over to his timeline, and saw his last post was the end of January. By mid-February people were posting on his timeline about his memorial service and sharing condolences and remembrances. The only obituary I could find did not list a cause of death. Mark was a serious, dedicated weightlifter and a very hefty guy. Perhaps it was too much for his heart. No matter.

Life is fragile. At times like this I’m reminded to savor it and be grateful.

Rest in peace and rise in glory, Mark.
