It's a bit after three, 3:14pm to be exact. I just received a call from my friend Chris letting me know that about 11AM today, Derrick died. He had been sick with cancer for about two years. They thought it was beat, but it just came back with a vengeance. It really is a death sentence isn't it.
I don't believe in god, so I know I'll never see him again. It's a bit surreal right now as I've never lost a friend like this. Maybe we all need to start giving to cancer research centers. Maybe we need to get off our morale high horses and say yes to stem cell research. Maybe we can prevent another Derrick.
I'll miss you.
