Default Loss of Coworker

Yesterday I was on a union website and saw the notice of a coworker's passing. I hadn't worked with him for quite a while, but I did spend a few months working with him a few years back.

He was only 50, and I remember his sense of humour, and him showing me a photo of his family's cottage or boat. It was some leisure item that he was happy to have to use with his family.

I hope he had many happy hours with them. I still feel kind of shocked.

Shock is quite normal in these situations, and sometimes guilt for not getting to know someone better when there was the opportunity.

With the death of someone, either we are close to them or not, we always feel that sense of shock. It's a constant reminder for us that we have to live our life to the fullest.

It's so natural to be surprised when hearing of a death of someone you knew. It might be worse when that person was young but usually any unexpected death is a shock.

But you remembered a good time you shared with that person and that's good. We all have to remember the good times.

I think deaths like the one of your co-worker makes you realise what a great life you have and how much you take for granted x

When we heard about any death its really shocked. He had happy days with their family and now their family is alone. You can give console to their family.
