Around 10 or 11PM last night my friend's dad died. She was extremely close to her dad and is very sad. And she is only my age, so losing a parent that young must really be difficult. Please keep her and the soul of her departed dad in your prayers. I actually knew her dad since 8th grade. He used to volunteer around our school a lot; when we got a bit older like highschool freshman and I had a huge crush on his daughter my friend, he used to drive us around to theme parks like Great America. He taught me the value of maintaining eye contact and giving a firm handshake, always said I was a great kid. I feel very bizarre and somewhat saddened knowing that someone I knew is dead. Thank you.
