    Life is too short! It appears this individual had some medical issues earlier in the year, that may have been related to his death. His facebook indicates he was in the hospital 26 days for something. Then again I could be wrong and the autopsy may shown something else. Very sad and reminds me to cherish every moment! RIP.
