Remembering My Dear Friend Who Has Died

<h1>I will Miss My Ol' Friend</h1>

I received word the other day that my friend Dan didn't have much time left, and another call the next day that he had died early in the morning.

<h1>This is a man I've known since I was a young boy.</h1>

I've known this man my whole life.  I remember him from when I was only a few years old, coming over and eating cookies and milk.  I would call him "cookie monster".

<h1>Every so often, my neighbor would call me up for some computer help.</h1>

While I was young, living at home, my neighbor lived just a few houses down.  When I moved away from home in 2004, we didn't have much to do with each other for about seven years.  But when I moved back in 2011 we reconnected as he became my neighbor again.    It started with a plea for help with a computer problem (I don't remember what anymore) and I've been his 'computer guy' ever since.

When I reconnected with him as an adult, I had just gotten married and moved into my house.  When this photo was taken, I was a family of SIX, still helping with PC problems.  Now I'm a family of SEVEN!

<h1>What a Great Loss, It's Been Great Calling You Friend</h1>

I will miss his calls for computer help and listening to his stories.  My children will miss me bringing home ice-cream from Dan's freezer!

Thank you for your sentiments.  Some of our conversations were about blockchain and crypto currency... he wasn't too impressed.
