I'm a mess! Apparently, Facebook has something called "New Message Requests" that I didn't notice til tonight. Going thru it, I found tons of messages that friends I had not yet added to Facebook had sent. One of these people was my 8th grade (and some of high school) sweetheart Alonso Estrada. He messaged me a year ago saying hi and congratulating me on my "successes". I didn't get the message til tonight. After reading it, I sent a reply saying I was sorry that I hadn't seen his message til now but hoped he was doing well. Then I went on his profile only to discover the awful news: he passed away this summer. I don't yet know why or how. He and I lost touch a long time ago. I always nagged him to be careful but only because I worried for him. I just hope he's in a better place now. Despite all the trouble he caused me in my younger years, he was a fun guy who I cared for deeply and he will be missed. RIP Alonso Estrada.
