Q & A

A co-worker passed away last night. Since she didn’t show up for work, office had to call her home and then a family member. She was living alone and had a heart attack. I don’t mean to be disrespectful, but you just don’t know about your life one day you‘re fine and the next day you‘re gone.

    • It can happen to any one of us unfortunately.  When these things happen, it’s hard not to think those fearful things.  

      But, when I hear about someone dropping down dead of a heart attack like that, I tend to think how lucky they are.  No suffering thru cancer or alzheimers or anything like that.

    • God bless her soul and her family. Linda DO NOT!!!! allow the enemy to set the spirit of fear upon you. IF you are a God fearing woman walking in Christ and HIS truths then you know that God does not give us the spirit of fear. Just keep trusting and believing God and staying healthy because even with all of that HE is in control we all are going to go that way someday, but of course we never want to die alone.

    • Very sorry for her family and loved ones,Linda. I don’t know if she was someone who went to the doctor for regular screenings but, I’m a big advocate for that. My husband refuses to go to the doctor for so much as a cholesterol test and that drives me crazy. I go for all of my screenings because having some advanced notice of impending health problems help us to make adjustments in lifestyle that can prevent such a thing as a heart attack or stroke.

    • Thank you everyone for your compassion.

      I didn’t know this teacher very well. Just last week I saw her beautiful smile and that’s my memory of her.

    • I am sorry to hear of this, bless her and her family.

      I agree with Cynthia, health screenings are so important.

      I also agree with Neicy, having faith and acceptance that God is watching over each of us quells any fears.

    • I had an identical situation at work about two years ago. My general manager hadn’t showed up for work for two days. When management went to her home with the police they found out she had passed away in her sleep of an heart attack - so unexpectedly.
      You‘re right about being fine one day and not fine the next. Goes to show you tomorrow isn’t promised to anyone.

    • Linda - So sorry to hear about this.

      @Cindy - My husband is EXACTLY the same way.  He finally went to the dentist this year after not going for years and I had to make the appointment for him...he’s like a third son.  And he smokes...he’s trying to quit though.  But his behavior drives me crazy!
