I found out this afternoon that a friend, not a close friend but a friend nonetheless, was found dead last night. Don't know how or why - possibly a heart attack. Mid-30s. At one stage she was going to come with me when I did my long-service trip back in '05. Circumstances conspired against her and she didn't make the trip. We've caught up a few times since for a drink or two and a natter. Now I'm thinking I should have made more of an effort to catch up more frequently.
I'm not sure why I'm even writing this. I'm feeling kinda numb more than anything. I suppose I just don't expect to hear that people younger than me have shuffled off this mortal coil.
Sleep well Trace.
