I got some bad news this day. A friend and former co-worker dropped dead from a heart attack. Jeff was 47 yrs. young. He leaves behind 5 kids and a wife. I was rather shocked at the news given that Jeff was quite active and played basketball. Jeff was a rare character given to practical jokes and always funny. He was like a big kid most of the time and constantly challenged the conventional ways of doing things besides being an outstanding die-maker.
The whole thing hits close to home given that I just had a stress test this past week. I got marching orders to lose 50-80 lbs. and quit doing all the fun things like snuff and potatoes.
