When Bad Things Happen To Good People

Today was.... the most sad day I've had in a long, long time. I got a phone call this morning - the type of phone call that relays the terrible kind of news that up until now I've only ever read about in the papers. A phone call with words that were so unbelievable, so surreal; words that just couldn't be true. But they were: A good friend of ours is with us no longer.

Brent, you are in our thoughts... And while it doesn't make it any better, it does take the sting out of it a bit to know that it happened while you were out doing something you loved, with people you loved.

You are an amazing person who will be missed dearly. Perpetually happy, always upbeat, the phrase "No dramas!", and wool socks in your crazy flip-flops... that is how I will remember you.




 

My heart goes out to Megan, to your family, and to J and Jody. Brent, you left us far too soon. May you rest in peace, our friend!
