October 17th, 2009

We started off the day at my girlfriend’s house having a Pumpkin Day—a celebration with pumpkin-flavored things. My girlfriend’s dad, Craig, stopped by for a bit to see us, and after a short visit he left again.

An hour later, we got a phone call that he was in a motorcycle accident. He didn’t own one, but had apparently rode someone’s who came by his place.

He had passed before we got to the hospital.

The date is a reminder—as well as the other deaths in mine and my girlfriend’s families—that anyone, even someone close to you who you see and talk to on a daily basis, could leave this life in an instant.

Never take them for granted.
Always show your love.
Live your life to the fullest.
