Sorry to hear that Ken!! Life isn't always fair and it's not always clear why things happen the way they do.
I had a good friend we all nicknamed "Mushroom" because his last name was Morrell. Sometimes I miss him still... (HE decided this life wasn't for him back in 1990).
Sorry 'bout that! Everything happens for a reason paisan. We just don't get to know the reasons everytime. I'm guessing there's a "master plan" to this whole crazy thing; and it ain't important for us to know "why" at this point in the plan.
Catch some biggins up there!!! Looking forward to a morel feast some time (never had them).
