So, my friend Fish has gone through all these really amazing life affirming, radical changes in his reality. He lost hundreds of pounds, he fell in love, he married, he started a successful business, he was building a new house for his bride…things were so great for him.
I found out a few hours ago that he died this afternoon. Just like that, he’s gone. I don’t really know about, nor are the details important to me. What matters to me is that a good man, leading a good life, was snuffed out like a candle, while evil stalks the planet getting fat and happy. It isn’t fair, it isn’t right, and if there is a cosmic muffin overlord, I am having words with it later.
I hope that this entry isn’t a news flash to anyone who knew Fish. I didn’t want to post anything in my journal until I’d called some people, and made sure that other people were on call lists, because I wanted people to hear it from other people rather than just reading it somewhere. That said, as I find out about funeral and wake arrangements, I’ll post them here as a sort of central clearinghouse information point.
Bye Fish, we’ll miss you.
