You were one of the first to invite me to all your events. You became a friend. After finding out that we both lived in the same area, plans to meet up and have a beer (on me) would always end up in either one of us being too busy. Life went on. You coming home late from your many endeavors and me juggling trips and other such things. Life is short.
Goodbye, dear friend. You are loved by many.
Beers and much more up there soon.
