I don’t even know where to begin when describing the loss of a friend.
The only word that comes to mind this morning is.. unreal.
I woke up to some sad news today that made me remember just how fragile life is.
Rest in peace, Brett. I will never forget you and your infectious smile and your positive outlook on life.
“It is a curious thing, the death of a loved one. We all know that our time in this world is limited, and that eventually all of us will end up underneath some sheet, never to wake up. And yet it is always a surprise when it happens to someone we know. It is like walking up the stairs to your bedroom in the dark, and thinking there is one more stair than there is. Your foot falls down, through the air, and there is a sickly moment of dark surprise as you try and readjust the way you thought of things.”

Please join me in remembering this for Brett today.
Rest in peace, my friend.
