Facebook network informs us – Good news and bad

Briefly, I want to thank the creators of Facebook and social media in general … for building the systems we use to connect one to another.  Even when it’s an email from somebody who heard that a post was made giving news we dread …

This morning I’m reminded that life is short and precious. A dear friend has passed away of an illness we all deeply fear, and yet every picture he posted on his Facebook page showed the fun, happy and hopeful mug we all loved.  Despite bandages indicating where brain surgery had disfigured him.

Lord bless you Lance.  And Thank you Facebook for the chance to glimpse my friend as he was, despite so many years and thousands of miles of separation.  I’m deeply grateful.
