Podcast #249: The Sad Phone Call by Tom Beal

As I excitedly answered the phone when I saw my Aunt calling me. After I asked, “So, what’s up?” and there was silence, I knew to brace myself for what was to come…

She had called to let me know that today, my grandpa who raised me for many years had passed away. It took me off guard because he and I had an amazing chat on the phone only last week…and I was excited to see him in the next couple weeks while visiting Upstate NY.

Lesson is, do not take for granted the ones you love. Be sure to reach out now, and often, not knowing when that last conversation will take place.
