day 86 blog 73 loss revisited

manuel and dave at their 20th high school reunion from monterey bay academy.

i had several topics i intended to blog about...there was a fire in the canyon behind my house and i had no idea...contacted several neighbors the next day which lead to talks of neighborhood watch and a neighborhood directory and connecting with them more...went to two birthday parties for a 4 and 5-year-old today...

but all this seems trivial and is lost to the news i just received from my husband who is visiting our friend travis in new york...one of their best friends from high school was found dead in his hotel room. cardiac arrest although foul play is suspected? i am floored. and so, so sad...i didn't even know him very well but manuel doesn't use words loosely and he said dave was the smartest person he ever knew and along with that manuel always spoke so highly of him as a good, kind person and dear friend. he leaves behind his wife and four-year-old daughter as well as a wealth load of family and friends.

here is dave at the reunion holding his daughter.
more friends at the reunion...
wife and daughter...

there isn't much more to say. hug those you care about extra tightly tonight.


  1. That's some pretty upsetting news. Prayers to all of you.
