Life is fragile and fleeting and we’re all, or most of us, doing our best to get through the challenges. Sometimes, the challenges become too much to bear. On Tuesday, August 20th, a longtime friend gave up the battle, gave into the call and chose to end his life. I don’t know the details of why, there are speculations by others, but I have not heard, nor do I actually want to know the exact reason my friend chose to move on.

I had called him about a week before his passing and he was not himself. I didn’t know that he had entertained this thought and I think the bigger shock is that he had been through his brother taking his life some years back, so I never imagined he’d choose the same path.

Another great big gaping hole in the world – Rest in peace Steve.
