so, before october of last year, i had never been to a funeral in my life. i guess i was lucky. then we got a call that one of our close friends took her own life. it was hard. real hard. then a few months later, same shit. an old homie decided to check out. and that was hard. and today, i get a call that one of my old high school friends died. shit sucks. i guess when we get older, it becomes a bigger part of life. but knowing it's gonna happen to all of us as we get older doesn't make it any easier. anyway, rest in peace, rich. love you, brother.
