Heart Attack

My nurse friend did not have to go to work today and he stopped by this afternoon just to say hi. We chatted for a short time because I was in the middle of doing work. He told me that his dad's friend, Joe, recently passed away suddenly from a heart attack. He had gone skiing and was fairly in good health. He did get the COVID vaccine, but the heart attack came unexpectedly. I have met Joe at least 10 times and the family always had good food every year for Thanksgiving. He was a podiatrist and only in his 60s. I feel bad for his wife and his two sons.
