At 11:32 AM, I received the news - via text message - that Dave Hotstream had passed.
Dave was only 38 years old - or 39, I can't remember which - and thus not at what some would consider an appropriate age for passing. Or maybe it was just the right and fitting time for him. Or maybe he was a late bloomer.
I believe he is finally in a better place.
I'm sure his friends plan to raise a few brews for him this evening at the Latrine. I sincerely hope to be among that number.
Hail, Dave. Godspeed on your journey.
Did I mention he passed his finals and will graduate nursing school?
Now we can all get good and stinking sick!
