He passed away yesterday. I read a confirmation on Facebook by his brother-in-law that it was indeed due to complications from liver cancer. He was 63.
He was an old, old friend. I had known him for nearly 34 years, which is well over half my life.
I don’t know if it’s really hit me yet.
The funeral and burial were already held this morning/early afternoon. Extremely short notice. Both John and I missed it as we didn’t find out the particulars until after it was all over. Bummer.
Although he often drove me crazy, he was a great friend overall. I hope I was a good friend to him too. He will be missed.
