…the one with all the I can’t believe he’s gone.
Flowers from Kim!
Before anyone freaks out, RR is fine. Our life got turned upside down this week but we’re coping.
Eleven years ago, I was dating a bass player in a band and R was this guy I knew who hung out with the band guys. Then, I was breaking up with the bass player and R was turning into a friend with the possibility of becoming more than a friend. I remember talking to the other band members (not the bass player, obviously) and asking them what they thought of the whole situation. I have a clear memory of the drummer, Jamie, telling me, “R is a good guy, you should give him a shot.” So I did, and I haven’t regretted it once.
I wish I’d had a chance to thank Jamie for that, I wish I had a chance for a lot of things.
Jamie was taken from us on Tuesday night. He was one of the kindest, funniest, off-the-wall people I’ve ever known and he will be deeply missed.
I really don’t have any words for this, I don’t know how to deal with losing a good friend who touched our life so much. I’m blogging about it because I need to put my pain out there so I can try to get back to having a blog that’s mostly my ‘happy place’. Thanks for listening.
