Demise

I have been away from writing for a while.  My lack of interest in writing here stems from a sad situation I have experienced.  A friend I have known for damn near 40 years passed away unexpectedly and it soured my thoughts and my inclination to do much other than the necessary to get through the day for a while.  He was only 73.  He was a very nice and robust person, somewhat bombastic at times, but a good fellow who stood for what was right very staunchly. 

I do not have much to write about concerning my friend at this time, other than to say that I will miss him.

Sorry for your loss and that it was so unexpected. That makes it all the harder.

Sorry for the loss of your friend. Never is a good time to lose a friend.

Your friend will live in your memory, and in your actions that are inspired by his memory. That doesn't ease the pain of loss, of course, but perhaps it's something to hang onto now that he has become an absent influence rather than a lively present one. I am sorry for your loss.
