A close friend of mine past away yesterday afternoon, way before his time.

The last time I saw him was Christmas evening 2003... he joined us for Christmas dinner. Everybody was so happy to see him, he was full of life, wit and charm. I will never forget the fun we had that night, and all the good times before then.

We miss you, L.C. We'll hike Mount Finlayson for you one of these days, lest it get lonely too.
