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.
take it easy Lee.
