I found out last night that my Mom's Best Friend's son died over the weekend. We were the same age and 60% of my memories before age 6 are of the two of us getting into trouble.

We hadn't lived near each other since we were little. I haven't hung out with him for any length of time since we were in high school. When we were 16, I was starting my first job and he was having his first kid. Man, that means his oldest is 17 or 18 now.

I'm just blue. I love his parents and I see them whenever they are near Dallas. The funeral will be about 9 hours away, so I won't be able to go. I'll dog sit for my parents.

ETS: You Guys are the BEST. We just got home from going out to eat with my parents and I am greeted by lots of internet hugs. Thank you guys.
