I've been using Facebook lately to catch up with old friends, classmates, and keep up with people in general (I know, I'm behind the times.) There are a lot of people from my high school I spent time with at the tail end of my college career but lost touch with when I traded coasts. Realistically, I was allowing myself to lose contact with them because I needed to sort some things out for myself.
I went to contact one of these people, my friend Hakim, and found a lot of ominous goodbye messages on his wall. Turns out he passed away.
This is the second friend from high school I've had pass away this year. The second one I lost contact with and meant to catch up with. I'm at a loss for words. I don't know what to say or do.
And I'm left with an unanswerable why.
