My friend died this morning.

I just received a phone call from my brother telling me that our friend, Bob, died early this morning. All his family was at his side. I'm even more thankful that we went to see him last Tuesday. Please keep his family in your thoughts and prayers as they lay him to rest.

Katie, I am so sorry for your loss. I am sure he got a great boost from your visit last week. You must have some wonderful memories of your times together.

Yes, Andy, tons of wonderful memories. I've known him 54 of his 61 years. Lots of history in that many years.

I'm sorry to hear that, Katie, but it's good that you were able to be with your friend recently. I'm thinking of you and his family.
