Off Topic

Hi guys.

I know this is way off topic, but I feel the need to talk about it with
people not involved. On Saturday afternoon, I got a page from my
husband. When I called, he told me his best friend, Matt Haakenson had
died. I came straight home of course, Matt had been my friend too. I'd
known him as long as I've known my husband.

He was found in his trailer by a friend of ours, but may have been dead
since Thurs. or Fri. I don't know yet. Haven't heard from anyone the
results of the autopsy. It was probably a blood clot that killed him.
Also, I had a recurring thought on Thursday of telling someone not to
go, it wasn't their time yet. May have been Matt and I didn't know it.

This helps a little, and I really just needed to talk about it a little
bit. Matt was my husband's best friend and they were very alike
personality and intelligence wise. He will be greatly missed. His cat,
Molly, is being taken in by his ex-wife (another friend of mine and my
husband's) so I'm not too worried about her at this time.

Thanks for letting me babble.
