Yesterday afternoon, I found out that my friend Dave died early Saturday morning. Dave had been battling cancer. I mentioned Dave in the I Choose To Live article.
Dave and I used to work together. He was always joking around and had a very good sense of humor. When I was going thru my foot stuff, he was also going thru stuff for cancer. He felt like I was dealing with more than what he had to and I thought the same about him – I think we helped get each other thru what we were dealing with. I know he certainly helped me. I haven’t seen Dave in person since I moved the summer of 2005, but we have kept in touch and I will miss him.
Yesterday afternoon right after Dave’s daughter sent the email to let everyone know that Dave had died, Amazing Grace by Il Divo came up in ITunes. I had never heard of Il Divo until Dave forwarded a link to a YouTube video once – the song he forwarded was Amazing Grace. Dave mentioned how much he liked Il Divo and had several of their CDs. I have over 3,000 songs on my computer and only 5 of those are Il Divo. It seemed like more than a coincidence that song just happened to play then.
I thought that Il Divo’s Amazing Grace would be a good video to share here.
Dave, you were a very special friend and I am very glad that you came into my life. I will miss you.
