Death Is A Gift And A Thief.

My friend died today.

His cancer progressed so swiftly, it devoured him long before the time the doctors had estimated - they said that with an operation, and chemotherapy, he could live at least 3 months -after the operation, he didn't live 3 weeks.

Death is a gift for the release from pain, and the torment of a body fighting itself.

Death is a thief for stealing my friend from those who loved him so.


  1. oh, it is so true. a gift and a thief. Sorry for your loss, be extra kind to yourself.

  2. I am sorry. I see death as inevitable part of living. I wish that our cells didn't age and our organs didn't die. Or that disease didn't take us. I hope that you will find comfort in having the time that you did with him.

  3. I am so sorry about your loss. There is in the program, at least, a place to continue to go through this where people will allow you to talk and grieve as much as you need to.

  4. One of my dearest friends was diagnosed with lung cancer yesterday. I feel your pain. I am sorry for your loss....Bless you and his family.


  5. Death is also a Sonofabitch sometimes. So sorry for the loss of your dear friend.

  6. I am so sorry. Its hard to lose people we care about.
