A wall apart: In memory of a friend
October, 2016 · By admin
I will miss that broad smile behind the wall. Every time I walk past his house like I’ve done for the last 38 years I expect to see him, have a chat and carry on. But now only blank wall, a run down car, a rusty bike and a dim light in the window greet me.
Last week a child hood friend passed away. Depression is a silent killer. Unfortunately none of us really knew how bad it was. Until the last few days he spent in the ICU trying to beat numerous failed organs and fighting numerous illnesses.
We always regret not having done anything, not having seen this coming, but things aren’t always in our control. At least he’s in a happier place now.
