A week ago Tuesday(1/12), Joey and I joined the other parents and boys from our cub scout den at the house of our Assistant Den Leader, Brian Murnen. Brian was a great guy who opened his house and his awesome woodworking shop to us every year so we could cut out our cars for the Pinewood Derby. This week, Joey and I are preparing to go to Brian's funeral. This Tuesday, the 19th, Brian wasn't feeling well so he stayed home from scouts. Brian never woke up on Wednesday morning. My heart is just breaking for Brian's wife, Ginny, and their two kids. He was only 48 years old and he will be sorely missed by many, many people.
Don't take any moment together for granted. Don't let petty crap get in the way of spending time with your loved ones. Treasure every precious moment because we never ever know when it will be the last.
Please keep the Murnen family in your prayers. They will need that silent support for a long time.
