I will be short with this post, as I am finding solitude, silencing myself, intentionally, and looking inward to find peace, and life’s meaning. I am praying, meditating, and reflecting on so many variables, and questions.

My best friend (50-years old) passed away on Tuesday. He died with peace surrounding him after having an extremely tortuous year of suffering with gastric cancer. He was my son’s high school friend, but most of all, my best friend, a man I could converse with on many subjects, and in confidence, as well. He was a true and gentle soul, always there if I needed to speak, or have him listen, always there for those in need, no matter the time.

He was like a son to me, but so much more than that, and I feel privileged to have known him for 34-35 years. His short time on this realm was extremely significant, and he illuminated so many individuals with his caring and love. He was a Blessing in my life. Thankfully we spoke on the phone on March 29th. His last text to me was Wednesday, March 31st. We texted daily, literally. I knew that he would not be able to communicate after that last text.

I am comforted that he is out of pain, and comforted that he is resting peacefully. I will love him, always and forever, infinitely. My dear Boy…
