Never been to a pre-reunion gathering before — did not go to CHS’s last week but did attend the class reunion. I had a great time. Saw some classmates from Milton that I have not seen or heard from for almost 20 years now and it is amazing how everyone is doing these days. We met at Varsity Lanes in Milton, Wisconsin and then hopped on over to Junction Pub, another place in Milton for a while then my friend SJ brought me home for the night where I sat for an hour relaxing before retiring to bed for the night. Yep, past bedtime of 9 p.m. tonight but that is okay. Sleep will come eventually and I am going to be busy tomorrow going to the MHS class reunion in the evening in hopes that I will go to a corn roast in the morning.
Even though I had a good time tonight – DC would have wanted me to – I had a void in my entire day knowing that he was no longer with us but gone because of a car accident. While at the pre-union party, my head spun listening and hearing all the conversations going all at once in one big room, and that was pretty wild for me.
I am heading to bed now.
RS and DC died yesterday and for both of them I am going to go on with my life the best I can this day forward. Both RS and DC were friends of mine who were killed in a car accident yesterday afternoon. DC, the man I dated for a while, would want me to enjoy life to its fullest in memory of him and not sit at home slumbering or slumped in a crumpled heap of mass in tears because they are no longer with us. Yes, I had bad news this morning, and yes, DC and RS are going to be greatly missed and memories of them both will be flooding in and out of my mind at times I will least not expect it – like their deaths were unexpected and tragic. DC and I have had some wonderful memories of one another and when we departed and became real good friends, I do have to admit that our friendship was the greatest I have ever known while DC was alive. I have known RS for a long time as well because he was once married to another friend of mine which later were divorced. It has been only a while now since I have known about their deaths now but I have to admit that I am in a state of shock and unsure of what is going to happen and what is to be expected. I feel lost in a whirlwind of happenings. I will be okay.
