Two of my grade school, high school buddies have passed this past 6 months.
One of them I met shortly after moving to a new town when I was in 2nd grade, the other soon after.
Played baseball, football, boxed, rode motocross together, plus hung out , a lot..
We had our ups and downs, I and one of them had a disagreement one day…And unfortunately it came to blows and I pounded him.
We lost contact after high school. With college and such. Reconnected with one during my many years of softball. Played together for a number of years.
Then I married and moved away. Lost contact pretty much..
Now their both gone.
One to cancer, the other just this past week to a massive stroke.
Life keeps bouncing along and sometimes bites..
