my lifelong friend and best friend throughout our childhood's dad passed away yesturday. i dont know exactly what was wrong with him, but hes been sick for a while. he was the father figure for me til i was around 13 and stopped going over to their house as much... but he always thought of me as a son. my friends mom had me come see him a couple of weeks ago. im really happy she did, because it was on a day where he was doing good, and she didnt think he had much time left... but i didnt think it would be this soon. so, this J goes out to the father figure of my life, the dad my dad has never tried to be, but more importantly its my friends dad, this one goes out to you Rick. to anyone who will, send some positive vibes to the family. i know some of you like to do that.
