This was the ending to a friend's life - A friend since 2nd grade ! . Played Little League together - HS Football + Baseball College Football Men's Softball for years + years. . He gets married ( went to his wedding )+ moves away to her area. I hadn't seen him in 15 - 20 years. . We find out he went through a REAL UGLY divorce. Had 3 kids -- moved a mile away, in a one room apartment - so he could be close to his kids. Then, loses his sales job which he had for years - worked part time at something else. . Another buddy of mine - found his number and called him 3 months ago. My buddy said, "The last thing he said to me was...'I love you, man." ** In hindsight -- this was chilling ! *** . Well, we travelled to his funeral -- And his wife was disrepectful about him. Even the priest ( she hired ) gave said comments I didn't like ! * We find out a story about our deceased friend. He cared for a widow up the block since he was a kid. Errands, lawn mowing, house painting,etc. He tells the widow - "I'm married and moving " She sells her house + moves nearby him. He continues to help her until she dies. He gets an inheritance from her. 7 days after he inherits -- his wife serves divorce papers. She got ALL OF HIS INHERITANCE. I don't know how ? - at this time - But she was very smart + controlling. It was a $400,000 inheritance. And he died broke and couldn't afford his asthma meds. There were no meds found in his apartment. We think he died of an asthma attack. * Thank god his sister was at the funeral - cos she was the only one saying nice things about him ! The priest tried to stop her from reading some notes she wrote down !....it was unbelieveably bad ! * I said to my wife......"Let's don't ever let that happen to us." > Thanks - I just needed to vent.
