We lost him yesterday. He left a wife, a young son, and a large extended family. It’s a shock. A tragedy.
He was my age.
Our parents married when we were in our early twenties. Since then we’ve lived across the country or around the world from each other. But the few times our families got together, I was struck by his kindness and love for everyone lucky enough to be in his life.
To say he will be missed isn’t enough.
