Another friend gone...

Although I haven't seen him since 6th grade, Ryan Smoley would have been listed among my "best friends of all time" easily. He was a great guy, who could always make you laugh. Unfortunately, when I moved from Huntington Beach to Ventura, I lost touch with him. Having recently discovered Classmates.com, I did a search for some of my old friends from that time period. Today I got an email and just found out that Ryan died from a drug overdose four years ago.

I feel very numb right now. Although I hadn't talked to him in many years now, I always assumed I'd see him again someday. That's no longer true.
