Goodbye Ben

This week I went to a benifit for a guy that died at 33. Ben from what i understand was a great guy that was involved in local radio and entertainment. I can't belive I didn't know him as he seems to have known most of my friends. Last night there was a benefit concert at the Fatcat with a silent accution to help out his wife and surviving children with the sudden loss. I can tell you that there was an amazing outpouring of love and support for his family last night.

It's pretty crazy.. from what I hear he was playing softball and came in after an at bat and fell over... it took about 20 minutes for paramedics to arrive and he was resuscitated but had gone a long time with out oxygen to the brain.

It's scary and makes me wonder if any of us our prepared for lossing someone suddenly either from freak acident or other reason. Not only that but do your friends and family know of your wishes and hwo you would like to be treated after death?

I don't have a Will but I'm going to write a live Journal one... so if I kick the bucket anytime soon please refer the peeps trying to sell my stuff at the garage sale this is what I really want done with it.... of course I'll be dead so what am I going to do about it.
