I want to bike across country with some people, you know, someday.... and he was one.
I don't remember him telling me he had cancer, and the last time I sent him stuff was Christmas cards.
So let me tell you it sucks to get Facebook notification that it's someone's birthday and heading over to send them the Super Birthday Pack
Then learning they're dead. It's pretty fucked up.
I guess all I can think to say to all of you, is for god's sake stay the hell in touch. Mario isn't the first friend I've lost to cancer, but shit, this doesn't get easier the more people it happens to.
I know the longer we live the more friends we lose, some close the door in your face, happened to me 4 hours ago, some suicide, 3 years ago, and some get cancer.
If you've got advice on how to deal with friends clocking out, in whatever manner, hit me with it.
If you've got advice on how to go one better than dealing with it, and maybe somehow turning a shit sandwich into sloppy joes with sharp cheddar, well, that would be mighty fine.
2020 you really really suck
