Goodbye

I've been out drinking at Todd English's Pub most of the morning so this will be quick.

If you've read Dead Star Twilight you know about the very good friend of mine whom I called "Brando." If you read the updated version of the book, which includes a kind of "where are they now" afterword, you know that he's been battling stage four lung cancer recently.

Well a few minutes ago I got what I assume was a mass text sent out to everyone in his contact list telling me that he's died.

God how I loved that guy. Fuck. Just -- fuck.

I'll miss you, man.

I am sorry. It's hard to lose someone you care about to a death that is sucky - when you're a kid, you always think you have time to tell someone you love them, to make things right with someone. I lost my kid brother just over two years ago...I still haven't gotten accustomed to the idea that I will never be able to tell him something, and have him respond.

What's worse than not being with family on Christmas?

Losing family on Christmas.

Damn, Chez...sorry to hear that.

Just a couple of days ago, my sister-in-law lost her cousin due to a car accident. Her family's in shock, and the fact that it happened just two days before Christmas...

It always sucks to lose someone you care about.
