1st one down

Well, I heard an interesting rumor today. That an old buddy of mine from grade school (Taft elementary) passed away. It was kind of a shock because for starters he was only 30. Brain hemorrhage, a very random thing, and it just happened all of a sudden. I’m sure there are others in are class that passed away, but he’s really the only one that was within our circle of friends, hence the title 1st one down. I guess I expected everyone I knew to just grow old, and during our twilight years, we’d finally hear news of so and so’s passing, but I just didn’t expect to hear it so soon. I wasn’t very close to the guy during the later years. Though during elementary and jr high, I would come over to his house a lot. He lived about 2 blocks away from my old house. He got into some trouble later on in HS, so I really didn’t hang out with him that much, but I think he did eventually clean up his act and grew out of his ways. Got married, and I got re-acquainted with him on facebook just a few months back. Which was why it was just so shocking to me to hear of his passing. Just wow. I guess it goes to show life is most definitely random, and you should enjoy every moment of it because none of us knows what tomorrow will bring.
