Another Reminder

There have been too many reminders recently of how fleeting and precious life is---Maria Sue Chapman, Tim Russert... This morning it hit me in a much more personal way. One of my colleagues at work lost his valiant year-long fight against colon cancer on Father's Day. Chuck managed my employer's finances; he did his job well and he always had a smile and a caring word for everyone. He continued to work until fairly recently despite undergoing intensive chemo treatment. I sometimes wanted to admonish him to go home and enjoy his family, but he was where he wanted to be and he did always make a lot of time for family, so I held my tongue. Chuck was a loving husband and a wonderful father of three boys , and he will be greatly missed.
