I received a phone call several days ago from my older sister and it's the kind of phone call you don't want to hear. My sister just informed me that her older son Thomas, my nephew, had just passed away. I was shocked! My wife was shocked! We were in total disbelief. How could this have happened we asked ourselves? To a boy who had many years left to live. Well, to make a long story short Thomas had a fall accident at work years ago which left him paralyzed and damage to his brain though he would recover some of his communication skills as time went on. We were all surprised because doctors didn't give him any chance of surviving because of the massive injuries to his brain. Anyways, forward about 7 years later and he was making remarkable progress. His communication skills had improved so much so that we were expecting him to move back into his own home from the hospice care he received in El Cajon. Forward to Thursday and my sister told me the bad news that day. I don't know what happened but we are all saddened by the loss of Thomas. My wife, kids and I went out to lunch that day with my sister Jeanette and her husband Brian to give comfort to my sister's family and enjoy some close family bonding and here's a picture of us all together in Clairemont at Apple bee's. We should Thank Jehovah God for the life that he gave us. Life is so short so we should live it like it's our last day.
