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.
