Its been a little over a year today that I got word that a good friend of mine Ben Pauls passed away. After talking with him for many years, he didn’t respond to any of my emails for over a year and I didn’t know what happened to him. It was one of those mysteries that I didn’t know about at the time and I was busy with my own life as it was. I just assumed the best for him. When I got word of his passing, I was decimated.
When a friend passes away suddenly, its hard to put into words how you feel. Even to this day I remember everything that we did together back in my high school and college days. Its a shame that we didn’t say close after I went away to college, but we both started new lives. He got married and had a few kids. I went away to college, graduated, and I got married as well.
Today I found pictures of him, the first time I have actually seen these in years and they just bring back all sorts of memories. All of them good ones. I still miss him today when I think about him.
