I've lost touch with nearly all of my old college fraternity buddies, so a month or so ago I was delighted to get an e-mail from one of them. He'd been searching various places and found me in a Kwajalein address list. We corresponded back and forth, just advising what we'd each been up to for the past 30 years, and I was looking forward to keeping up the conversation.
Well, it's not gonna happen. I got an e-mail from his son today saying he'd died suddenly at the age of 56. The family sent out notifications to everyone in his e-address book.
It's a little hard to believe that after so long we'd gotten back in touch and a month later he's gone.
So long, Bob. I hope they've got 12-string guitars and basketball courts where you are now.Posted by Linkmeister at June 3, 2006 05:45 PM | TrackBack
