Death of a friend

A friend of mine died yesterday. Actually, she wasn't so much a friend, as someone I knew who was very nice to me whenever we were together. In fact, she was nice to everyone. She was a lovely person. She was only 55, and her husband - suffering a mid-life crisis - walked out on her and her teenage daughter about 5 or 6 years ago, which naturally took its toll on her. Since then she has been plagued with lung and respiratory problems which were eventually her cause of death. Such a pity. Very sad.

Funnily enough, her ex-husband was there with her when she died. I guess his mid-life crisis over, he felt he ought to be there. I wonder if he realised that her death could be traced back to his actions? Maybe he was by her side asking forgiveness for his actions? After all, he didn't leave because of another woman (or man!), he left because "he got sick of having a family" and didn't want to be "tied down".

I also wonder if that sort of thing happens when people move away from their "home" town. I mean, when someone who was born in the UK and has spent most of their life there decides to move to fuengirola spain, for example, with their family,  then has a mid-life crisis and walks out...what happens to the family that's left? Do they go back? Do they stay and try to make ends meet?

It's a tough call and one I'm glad I don't have to make right now!
