This morning, I received terrible news that a high school classmate was killed in a car accident last night. I didn’t know Fred very well, but I was a football manager in high school and he played. We’ve had few interactions over the last few years, but he was an incredible person. He was motivated, passionate and kind. It’s unfortunate that such a wonderful life was taken from us too soon.
Regardless of how well you know a person, a tragic event like this is bone chilling. It really puts things into perspective. And it’s a reminder to tell people you love them. Treat friends and family with kindness. Treat STRANGERS with kindness. Each day we have on this Earth is a blessing; don’t take it for granted because you never know when it will be your last.
My heart hurts for the Statz family. RIP Freddy Statz. You were one helluva guy.
