I just found out tonight that one of my friends is dying of stage four cancer, last month he was given 2-4mos to live.
R was there when I baptized my oldest child, he's acutally her God father and was one of the first people to meet her when she was born. He has a daughter 4mos younger than mine that is named after her and was one of my best friends for many years but we haven't talked in about 3.5yrs. The reason being things between us turned sexual for awhile and 0211165when he started dating the woman he recently married he changed his number and I also changed mine for other reasons. We just grew apart I guess.
Despite not talking for several years I've always thought of him and wondered how he was but I had no way to contact him. I considered him one of my best friends and he was.
16 years ago he started out as my ex's best friend but when my ex started abusing me R convinced me that I was worth more than that and he physically helped me move out. Because of that they are no longer friends. He would always call me and we'd talk for hours, about my guy problems, his girl problems. We laugh and joke and when i was feeling down he come and cuddle with me. We joked about marrying each other LOL! He would always come and check on me and my kids and make sure everything was okay with us.
I don't understand how a piece of smurf person (my ex) who spends their days beating women (includng their own mother!), smoking crack and meth and drinking themselves into oblivion is still alive and well. And someone like my friend, who is a kind, caring and wonderful person has only a few months left to live. SmUrf.
I am so sorry I often wonder hy it seems the best of us go through the hardest things in life, or pass on too soon. He seems like a fantastic man and I hope that you can reconnect with him in the next coming months. hopefully more than what they've told him.
