Default If you got kids....

... go hug 'em.

My best friend's (and homebrew sampler extraordinaire) brother in law had a cancerous mole removed Jul 3; and a few lymph nodes showed precancerous. He had a seizure this past Sat. and they found a golfball sized tumor in his brain.

He never regained consciousness, and my buddy's sister took him off the ventilator this afternoon.

He leaves behind a 17 year old (stepson, technically), 12 year old, 6 year old, and 3 year old.

He was 44.

I have a 4 year old and 22 month old, and this is my worst fear. Public speaking - nah. Not seeing my kids from an old man's perspective - I won't sleep tonight.

If you believe in God, as I do, pray for them.

That is truly tragic. My sincerest sympathies go out you and them. I also love the Lord, and my family and I will pray for them. I hug my two boys (4 & 2.5 yrs) more than they can stand it.

Best regards,
