Hits home

I went to a funeral last night for a friend and fellow physician.

She died a few days ago.

She was diagnosed with ALS approximately a year ago.

We were the same age (51).

We both have two children.

I've coached her son on YMCA basketball teams for 4 years.

The service was inspirational.

Her husbands eulogy was excellent.

I haven't been this contemplative over a death in quite a while.

We had a lot of similarities in our lives.

I'm just so thankful for still being alive with my wife and kids for as long as I'm meant to be.
