 Our friend (and co-worker's) father passed away yesterday. 
His health rapidly declined over the last few months, and we could see the stress of it wearing on her more and more each day.

He was a lifelong rancher in this town.  An old cowboy, "tough as nails," "full of piss and vinegar." 

They have a tight-knit but huge family, and everyone is very sad. 
These situations break my heart.  And they help me remember how special life is.

We have an extraordinary son, and another on the way.  Today I am reminded to feel blessed and thankful.
