Funeral For a Friend

I have had some truly bizarre shit happen to me as of late, haven't really documented it here, trying not to focus on the negative. But something, no idea what, happened to someone else, someone I really cared about. I thought it appropriate to post this, as it would go basically un-noticed if I didn't. A guy I knew, dare I call him a friend, was found dead, floating in a stream in West Virginia, under questionable circumstances. Here is the link to the only news source reporting it. He had problems, and the last time I spoke with him, right after Christmas, it seemed like they were all working themselves out. I tried to do all I could, and he even helped me on a few occasions. He was a guest in my home and someone I would call a buddy. Family members and fellow friends are all trying to cope with this loss, searching for answers. My heart goes out to his teenage son, whom he adored, and doted over. I am kinda known for my thick skin, but this really saddens me, bummed to the core. Have lost a few brothers over the years, this one bums me out, because it seemed like everything was just starting to click for him. May God bless and keep Rodney, watch over him, provide comfort to the people he left behind, and if there is any justice in the world, maybe he is in a better place, free from any anguish that he suffered.
