The Last Conversation

It's one thing to lose someone we love when we know they are dying.
It's an entirely different thing when someone in our world dies without warning.
The former provides opportunities to say goodbye; the latter does not.

Today a close friend of mine is facing the latter with the completely unexpected death of someone close to him who was only 50 years old. She went to bed last night happy and healthy only to die in her sleep. My heart aches for him and his family.

I wonder who she spoke to last. I wonder what she said.

When someone dies in our world, it's quite common to recall the last time we saw or spoke with them. Think about the people you've lost. Who did they speak to last? What did they say? What was your last conversation with them?
