I just got a call from my friend Mark's sister. She told me that he was either shot by someone or he shot himself, at around 1:00 or so this morning. The police are scoping everything out and seeing what's what. I don't know how he died or where, under what circumstances. What matters is that my friend is gone. I knew the guy all the way back to the seventh grade. Mark was all of 26 years old, bi-polar, depressed, very creative, very outspoken and a pretty cool guy, even if he wasn't sober very often. I talked to him on the phone a lot, and heard all about his problems, hopes, fears, thoughts, what have you.
The last time I talked to him was a few days ago on the phone. My last words to him were "See ya later."
