    My son was home this weekend for a wedding. He lives all the way over on the west coast now so we don't see him much. He wanted to get together with a friend of his, but the schedule just didn't work. No biggie, his friend said, we'll just get together next time.

    My son's friend had a brain aneurysm at home alone on Sunday and wasn't found until Monday. By then there was nothing that could be done. His mother took him off life support yesterday. He was 28.

    I knew that his father had passed away at a young age (in his 50s) from a stroke, but he had never had any signs of a problem. My son never had a lot of friends and he was one of them. It is hitting my son hard.

    Thank you. I did talk to my son again and he said he is "fine" which is how he has been ever since he was a little boy; even when he wasn't. He did talk to his best friend who was also a friend of the deceased so there has been some long distance friend therapy.

    I believe that is precisely what happened to Derrick Bohn with KSF. It is a sad unpredictable thing. I'm sorry that I never had the opportunity to meet him. I feel for your son.

    We often don't know it's coming when our time is up. Give your wife and kids a hug and tell them you love them.

    He was home over the weekend (all the way from Seattle) for the "celebration of life" memorial service. His friend's mom broke down in tears when she saw him because coming all that way showed her what their friendship meant. I'm lucky to have such a son.
