Unexpected Loss

Last Monday, we received the news that Peter, one of Jason's classmates, had passed away. He collapsed during a routine visit to the gym and passed away as a result of a cardiac arrest. We both were speechless and shocked to hear that Peter, someone so active and healthy, would pass away unexpectedly. I know God has a plan...but it's still hard to deal with losing someone so young(26 years old). I know that we are not guaranteed tomorrow but it's so easy to forget. This has truly opened my eyes...I want to do better at living each day to the fullest, as if it were my last.
Peter had a smile that could light up a room. His smile was almost infectious...onced he flashed his pearly whites in a room, you couldn't help but smile back. He was so kind, generous and thoughtful. He had such a caring and giving personality...he made an awesome student doctor!
Peter will be greatly missed! Please pray for Peter's family as they are dealing with their loss.
