Losing a Friend
Wednesday I received an email from Jay, asking me to call him. I did. He informed me that Pete had died on Monday. The obituary is online. He was 33 years old. I don't know how he died.
I've been friends with Pete since high school. He was a supremely talented artist, a warm and passionate person, and had a wonderfully complex sense of humor. Puns were his specialty. He had a rich sense of irony, and appreciated farce more than most people I know. I always enjoyed spending time with Pete.
God bless you, Pete. Rest in peace.
