A Shipmate And Close Friend Died Yesterday

I can't even describe what I'm feeling right now. He was just online rooting for his football team talking smack as usual and then out of the blue we get the message on our Ships page that he's been killed in a work related accident. We're the last crew to serve onboard the USS Lexington Avt-16 before it was decommisioned in 1991. He is also on the team to set up our next reunion and had just put up the information about it. I wish I had the means and the money to go to his memorial but I don't. He is one of my only two close friends on this earth. He is a good man, Veteran, and Sailor.

It's a terrible thing to lose a good friend....for any reason. And it's hard to say goodbye...
