As some of you may be aware I lost an old friend a few days ago. It's actually hard to write about the guy, because he was one of the good ones. Not only was he a friend to all, had a wicked sharp sense of humor, but he was a man you could trust to do the right thing in any circumstance. Too often we don't see that kind of combination in the people we meet.
My friend Bruce and his girlfriend, who lost her life alongside him, will be remembered fondly. Today I'd like to share one of his favorite songs, the Grateful Dead's "Touch of Grey":
"I hope it is true that a man can die and yet not only live in others but give them life, and not only life, but that great consciousness of life." - Jack Kerouac
