During these past few months a couple classmates have passed on due to illness, but today was an unexpected loss. A friend of many of us in our small community was on his way to a job site this morning when he went off the road and rolled his pickup. He was found unresponsive by a policeman who was also his friend, around 7:30 AM this morning. I’m glad our last conversation together was a fun one. We both laughed and wished each other the best. He will be sorely missed.
