Yesterday, a dear friend lost a dear friend. Anni is one of my very best friends from college. Chad was a very good friend of her’s.
Anni, Patrick and I stopped at Chad’s house ten years ago on a road trip. He was funny and kind and charismatic and hospitable. I only met him once, but he was very memorable.
Chad is my age and has a son Brandon’s age. A lump forms in my throat thinking that. We are mortal. So why do we take the days of our lives for granted?
