    ..... that those you love, know that you do.

    A member of another photography forum I frequent passed away suddenly today, with no apparent rhyme or reason. He was in his 20s, and led a fairly active lifestyle as a police officer. At this point his death is of unknown cause, and foul play was not involved.

    He was found in his house today by his girlfriend. He leaves her, as well as his parents, siblings, and friends behind to cope with his sudden absence. It is eerie to think that he was posting on the forum as late as last night, unaware what lay ahead.

    So folks, please, take a minute and let those in your life know that you love them. For I know that Andy and his family would cherish even a few short minutes longer together, knowing now what fate had already written.

    Godspeed, and sweet goodnight Bohonk. We'll miss you Andy.

    Oh no. That's awful. And so young too! :-( His family and friends must have gotten such a shock, and I truly hope they'll be alright. And I hope you're alright too Rob, it certainly is frightening when someone you know dies, no matter how well or little you knew them.

    Gawsh,,, I don't know what I would do if my boyfriend died. Or child. It's such a shame that things like that have to happen.

    Thank you for the reminder, life is so short. I am sorry for the loss of your friend and my thoughts are with his family and friends during this time.
