There is little that sets you back on your heels like hearing a friend has died. I always think of Nick, and these words he wrote five years ago.
Of course, we are all dying. As one of my friends is fond of saying, “We are only one heartbeat away from leaving this earth. Every one of us.”
If you haven’t read Nick’s commentary on dying, Tim McGraw and living the life you have, then you should. He was an expert on two of the three.
I like to think those who have left are doing what they loved before disease, old age or accidents took their last heartbeat. I’ve been listening to this Chris LeDoux song on repeat today.
