Agreed, Mike; this news is still surreal to me...much like when I saw the news that Michael Jackson had passed...yeah, he's so YOUNG to die like that
No, actually, I just log into home theater shack and found this thread. Often times, it is funny, I get my "news" from AV forums like Home Theater Shack..Did you hear about this already, Tripp?
Oh no...my sincere condolences to you and your family...that is awful; was he very close to certain people in your family? Jeez...what is it today? Was there a horoscope I didn't read or something? This is utterly depressing.....:crying:No, actually, I just log into home theater shack and found this thread. Often times, it is funny, I get my "news" from AV forums like Home Theater Shack..
Everybody has a number. Live each day the best you can. A friend of the family passed away today also, I didn't know him well but he was only 45 and had a 7 year old kid.. Such a tragedy. You just never know.. One day you are alive and enjoying life and then the next you are dead of a heart attack.
That is a terrible tragedy, my friend...again, you're in my prayers...Thanks. I didn't know him well. He was a family friend from my wife's side. For her and her family it is a complete shock as you can imagine. It is a tragedy.
I always give my kids and wife a hug everyday .. You just never know what can happen. I am in my early 40s.. Just never know.
Thank you, JJJ; I appreciate you even listening to the story...:wave:Oh man, I do feel for you. That is tough. Maybe you can just visit her by yourself? It is tough, I know.
Thank you, my friend; well, his passing wasn't really "unexpected"...what had happened was, he went in for heart surgery and after the procedure -- which went well -- he developed ALL sorts of complications that lead to his needing to be put on life support when organ after organ kept shutting down....I blame the medical field in our state for the problems he encountered, as the medical here is AWFUL...but eventually the complications got too complex and he passed in an ICU unit...Sorry to hear of your dad's passing. My deepest condolences. These things one can never prepare for.
Wow, glad you were able to find the coronary artery disease early. Regular checkups are a must. You never know what can happen but an ounce of prevention goes a long way.yes, sad news all around as Gandolfini was one of my favorite character actors. He was always brilliant at playing the tough. I myself recently went through quadruple bypass surgery in April (Coronary Artery Disease) at 52 and I am one lucky son of a gun that the issues were caught in time. Take care of yourself and get checkups from your Dr.
