Please remember in your prayers the servant of God Dmitri who died this morning in a motorcycle accident. Please also remember his girlfriend Cassie who survived with some broken bones and a broken heart.
I am gutted. Dim was one of my oldest friends. He was also my most wacky. Totally unpredictable; he'd pop up in the strangest places at the strangest times and it was always a pleasant surprise. He was the kind of person who asked, "How are you?" and meant it. He'd also be the first person to have your back if something "unpleasant" happened.
I am not the crying type when it comes to death, but I can't go ten minutes without at least tearing up. I've had all sorts of acquaintances my age pass in my short 37 years on this earth, but this is the first real friend. I do not like it.
Вечная память, Дми́трий.
