Do you remember being back in high school or college. Waking up every morning early sitting in classes all day long learning, making life long friendships and memories you would never forget. Your favorite teachers, books, constant writing assignments, math and everything else that comes with getting an education.

Soon minutes become hours, hours become days, days become weeks, weeks become months, months become years and it all becomes one giant blur until you graduate. Before you know it your childhood is over. It’s time to get a job and enter the real world, get married have a family and eventually retire.

Not everyone gets this amazing privilege to live a full and meaningful life here on planet earth. Some of us are lucky enough and should always remember everyday is a blessing just to be alive. That brings us to today’s tragic and heartbreaking story.

It began as just a regular old Tuesday in Perland Texas, slightly cloudy a small breeze, fresh air was filling 17-year-old Joshua’s Grays lungs that morning. Josh was a kid everybody at school ┬ájust gravitated to. On top of being athletic his grades were top notch and he was in many advanced placement classes.

His mom said Josh was known for his hipster style and swagger and was quite the fashionista that others looked to for fashion advice. Like many other kids his age he was preparing to go to college in a year and he had quite the bright future and unlimited potential ahead of him.

But this one strange Tuesday would change everything forever. Josh’s mom made him a breakfast and gave him the same bagged lunch with the same sides and sandwich he always brought to school since he was just a young lad in kindergarten. Josh always made sure the bread crusts were cut off because he couldn’t stand to look or tasty the ‘gross bread crust’.

He walked out the front door and his friends picked him up to head off to another day at Glenda Dawson High School. He got to school picked up his stuff from his locker and then went to his first class. He sat there and everything seemed fine at first. But by 11 am his Josh’s stomach started to feel a bit uneasy. This uneasiness quickly became the worst stomach ache he had experienced in his entire life! He knew this was no ordinary stomach ache as the pain soon became excruciating and unbearable!

He went to the school nurse who knew he needed to go to the hospital immediately so she called 911. Josh was deteriorating fast as the stomach ache was now causing his pulse and breathing to slow down as the ambulance rushed to the Emergency Room.

Doctors tried desperately to revive him as his pulse came to a stop repeatedly in the E.R. By 3pm the otherwise healthy Joshua Gray was pronounced dead on site. His family and community were all stunned and had no idea how a perfectly healthy boy could get a stomach and die only a few hours later!

The doctors could not explain it either which left everyone grasping for answers. The tragedy was beyond horrible and the entire community was just broken and confused. ┬áThe Doctors were also baffled and seeking answers because they had never seen anything like this in 40 years. What was Josh’s cause of death? How was this possible? Would anyone ever know what truly happened?

As it turns out, an artery leading to his pancreas ruptured and internal bleeding commenced. They believed that Josh had an undiagnosed valve malfunction in this artery since he was a child. Could this tragedy of been avoided? Nobody really knew the answer to that.

This story is a reminder that we need to cherish everyday we have with the people we love because you never know if it will be your last. Make sure to appreciate everyday even the bad days because it could all be over just like that!
