One of my friends died today. She passed away June 24th but I just found out about it this morning. I sent her an email yesterday, just checking in, seeing how she was doing. Wishing her Happy Holidays.

I awoke today to a reply from her Father; she was killed in a drunk driving accident at Lake Texoma this summer.

I would be lying if I said we were the best of friends. We dated briefly, but it was quickly evident her soul belonged with someone else. Never the less we kept in touch thru emails and phone calls, and the occasional drink or spliff here and there.

She had a smile that would light up a room, and I will never see it again. She was engaged to be married, and if anyone ever deserved to live a long, happy life; it was her.

My thoughts and condolences go out to her parents, fiancée and friends, I will most definitely miss her.


everybody dies
it’s how you live that matters
we will see you soon
