A life ends too soon

Back in September, I posted about Daniel Feist, Montreal broadcaster, musician, and educator with whom I had the privilege to work many years ago. The post was called Cancer: Compelling and Personal, and I wrote about my thoughts of a killer disease that has reached into far too many of our families.

I am sorry to relay the news that Daniel lost his battle last Friday.

If you're relatively new to my blog, I encourage you to click the link above and read this post. There were a lot of lessons embedded in Daniel's life that we would do well to emulate in our own.

You are certainly blessed in having known D.F. personally - his passion and varied interests certainly were reflected in his work - I will miss his wonderful voice and the energy and diversity he brought to radio.

I think that cancer is possibly the most sobering (for the living) form of death. If you're around the dying, it's sobering because they are consumed from within. If you merely know of them, they are usually taken too early, and somewhat mysteriously, by something that can affect any one of us.

I'm hoping that cancer is beaten before my children are old.

Where your post is sad, I hope that perhaps a happy comment will brighten the day a bit.

Thank you so much for wandering past my website :) I'm not sure how you got to me, but it's always a pleasure to meet a new reader!

I think I always wanted to be a journalist, but I simply didn't have the guts to go for it. I'm sure you endured plenty of long searches for a job over the years.

Good luck, and I hope to see you through more often!!
