I lost one of those friends yesterday morning, and I am saddened beyond all words and expressions. Of course I've known loss in my life, but nothing remotely to the extent of this. At the news I sat for a very long time feeling the tears pour freely down my face onto my shirt. The loss is complete and totally unexpected, so much so that I expect to carry this emptiness with me for the remainder of my days.
