The Passing of an Old Friend

Last week Ed Cantley, an old and dear friend died after a long battle with liver disease. Nobody was ever to pin down the exact cause; Ed never drank or had any other reason to have his liver fail, but that was the eventual cause of his death. There is a picture of him in a suit and tie in Bonnie Collins’ picture album; I bet that was the first and last time he ever wore one. I wonder if it was for prom or graduation? I was hoping he would get to see it, but I guess that didn’t happen.

So long, old friend.
