old friends

There is nothing better than a friend. Friendships make you a rich person.

An old college roommate/friend called me to touch base. He was actually the best man at my wedding. For some reason we kind of drifted apart. Long distance, new families, kids, etc…

Recently an old highschool friend of his died at 38. Heavy drug user. This prompted him to call his old friends and touch base.

Funny thing is that I’ve had two friends die on me in the last few years. Both my age…way too young to die. Both due to drugs or alcohol.

Feh. People shouldn’t die before 50…really…come on now.

It was nice to hear from Kurt. Hopefully we’ll be able to keep up the contact and re-establish the old dialogues.
