A very good friend of mine died the other day, but I just found out yesterday. He was only 63 and I will miss him very much. He had been sick for a long time with stomach cancer which spread all over. He did not have insurance. He was self employed and until he could get Medicare, he couldn't afford to go to the doctor when he first got the signs a couple of years ago. This makes me very mad and makes it more essential that health care be affordable to all. He was a hard working person. Both he and his wife were real estate brokers. He was the kind of person who ALWAYS put a smile on your face and this should not have happened. So to me this is a double tragedy.
