Six years passed…

Yesterday marked six years.
Six years ago, I lost a dear friend.

Someone taken too soon – 19 years young.

It’s crazy how quickly time passes. This time every year, I think about him. Think about the friendship we had. About the last conversation I had with him.

Death sucks. Death without warning sucks even worse. I mean, with my grandpa’s illness, we knew it was coming. We had a chance to say goodbye.

But with Peter, it happened quickly and unexpectedly. A car accident. Going to fast down a dirt road. Lost control and rolled right into a giant boulder.

It was hard to wrap my head around at 19. It was unfair.

And so at this time every year I think about him. Think about how precious life is. How important it is to cherish the people you love in life.

You never know when the last conversation will be.
