A Punch Right to the Stomach

I hope everyone had a nice weekend.  Mine sucked.  At Sir T's basketball game on Saturday morning, a friend of ours told me that our neighbor was just diagnosed with pancreatic cancer.  My heart is broken.  Our neighbor, Jay (I'll call him), is a very handsome 49 year old father of two brilliant beautiful children and married to an absolutely gorgeous and friendly woman.  They are the PERFECT American family. 
Why is this happening to him?  His family?  His friends?  His parents?
As you can imagine, the diagnosis is not good.  6 months to a year.  I can usually find something positive in everything but this one -- NOTHING.  My thoughts are all over the page.  I haven't slept in two nights and I am in a funk.  THIS MAKES NO SENSE.   I'm heartbroken.

Sorry for the news. He must be further along. My step father was diagnosed 8 yrs ago and after treatment and check ups he still is clear. Sending prayers.
