I saw the obituary of a friend and wonder how he died. We have not seen or spoken to each other in about ten years. He was too far into alcoholism. When he was not funny, he was abusive. I was his computer person. The first thing I did for him had him convinced I was the best. He had had two "computer experts" (his words) to work with his computer and printer. I was the only person who finally got his printer to quit speaking German or French or something. So, he paid me to make house calls.
He was very young, not a boyfriend or anything. But, I am shocked he died. Last year, I heard he was on the list for a liver transplant but recovered and did not need the liver. His birthday was September 3, and always sang the song about the third of September, just a bit of it.
You may think he was not much of a friend if we had not spoken lately. However, things happened and I was busier. So was he.
Have you regretted not staying in closer touch with a friend who died?
