is losing friends and family. I've been trying to contact my friend, John, for over a year. called him a few times, and stopped by his house a few times. I just heard from another person that he died a little over a year ago, probably within weeks of me talking to him the last time. Word is he rolled his tractor and broke his leg. His recovery was going well enough but a blood clot went to his lungs. We started at the casino poker room at the same time in 1994. He was about my age. He was my longest living friend. Dammit, John, you could have told me. Getting old ain't for p******.
