    • Yes. It’s very sad. The thing that I found saddest was that it took him forever to get through law-school and he finally passed his bar last december and he was so proud! You’ve never seen a kid smile as broadly as this one and then suddenly he was diagnosed with cancer and not even four monthes later he is dead?! I didn’t even know how serious it had gotten until it was too late.

      He spent so much time working his butt of this degree and for what?! It really makes you think.
