Ugh, talk about a kick in the gut. I just found out someone I went to high school with died suddenly yesterday. I played football in high school with him. He was one of the guys everyone was scared to play across from on the line. I took many a beating from him in high school as he was first string and I was on the bench. He played D line and I was O line. He was a great player and probably could have went somewhere with it if he had been a little taller. He was a beast on the field and always played clean. And the best part is once off the field he was one of the nicest guys in our class. We havenít talked really since our last reunion and even then didnít talk much, but we were friends on facebook so I saw a lot of his updates and within the last 18 months he had completed barber school and opened up his own shop. Well, he bought one from an older guy who wanted to retire. He left the name the same to honor the guy retiring. I am not sure what happened, assuming heart or something like that. He also had 2 younger children. I think both are in grade school now.
Sad to hear that news. My thoughts go out to his family in their time of pain. Don, may you Rest in Peace.
