Death does not make appointments. It abides by no schedule, And never checks in with secretaries. It will not wait for an open day, and does not take weekends off.
So shortly after my more-of-a-brother-to-me-then-my-brother cousin bit it, a rather good friend passed away yesterday. Closest person by proximity to have died now (Same house), Tom was a pretty awesome dude. He had a seemingly endless pool of wisdom and patience to draw from. Though I am not a member of the Pagan coven most of my house was in, He was a (perhaps the most) reveared member of that coven, serving as it's High Priest.
I'm not as.. sad or mournful as my rl-peers. Or my mates Johnny-Dog and Alynna are. I was not as close as them, And Tom was an old man with many many experiences. He lived a life that was very very full, and had the spiritual power to reach the afterlife he sought.
Nonetheless, I will miss Tom greatly, he had been an.. anchoring structure in my life for well over 8 years.
