a moment of silence.

on a serious note...
i found out yesterday that an old friend
from high school had passed on sunday morning.

to reflect:
i met him in high school,
we went to opposing junior high schools,
but that didnt seem to matter.
he joked around alot and didnt stay with
the traditional cliques in high school.
he got along with everyone,
and was the bridge for alot of different cliques.
i think he was the first person i met in high school who wasnt from
my old junior high/elementary.
in fact, i would say he introduced me to alot of
cool people in h.s. since i was so socially inept.

the good times i remember come from:
clowning around in art class,
playing a ton of street hockey
and football together in whitehorn,
hanging with the crew
during many a lunch hour
goofin around.

one of the things im going to have to look for,
(that he was super proud of)
is his kick ass tackle during the
high school city championships...
one day ill find it, and post it in his memory.

the last time i saw him in person was
in 2004 for a high school reunion.
it was great to see him.
he was the same happy go lucky guy
i remembered in high school.

he always had a place in my heart,
since he along with everyone
who was a part of that high school crew,
brought alot of great memories in high school.

with a heavy heart,
i hope the family stays strong in these tough times...
my prayers go out to them.

rest in peace gin
i will miss you.
