When the chips stack up they really know how to fall

Well today is Sunday and last week really packed a punch for me. I've always believed when people die, it comes in three's. If you recall my post in regards to one of my former high school classmates, her husband was murdered. They have made progress and arrested 2 suspects in the case.

I found out last midweek that one of my former co-workers from my part-time job lost his 4 yr old son to his battle with cancer back on April 6, 2008. I do remember the lil angel, his nickname was 'lil man' his real name was Charles Lattier. I wasn't able to make the wake or the funeral unfortunately. My prayers are with John (his father). John did so much for his son and daughter especially since he was raising them both himself. Unfortunately the mother didn't want to have anything to do with her son. You couldn't help but admire John's strength. I know lil man is in a better place and not suffering anymore. you can read more about him on They did a story on him back in Feb. 2008.

Update on April 10, 2008

Then I found out yesterday last night from my mom that a cousin of mine who lives in Chicago and is just a few years older than me was released from the hospital and sent home because they can no longer help him with his fight against luekemia. They say it's just a matter of time before he goes.

So I sit here now in my bed watching cartoons and think to myself. Death has no boundaries and never discriminates.
