I never thought that I’d out live any of my friends. It’s
such a strange thought, and so foreign. I guess had I really thought
about it, it would have been inevitable that some would pass away before
I did. But I guess you never really think about that. Two good friends
of mine passed away this year. Kenny Samuel Chiu (3.27.84 – 7.30.01)
was murdered outside his house in my neighborhood back home in Mouton
Ranch, Laguna Hills. And Nathan Stewart Lynch (1.7.81 – 11.3.01) passed
away after losing a long battle with cancer in Madison, Wisconsin. They
will never be forgotten.
