Today I found out that my good friend Jay Bonfatti had died.

We 'pulled up the stakes early' to return from camping in Angelica and grieve. Jay was a man among men, he was large and in charge, the life of the party and my good buddy. It is a very sad day as I try and say goodbye to my friend who was snatched from this world way too early.

We love you Jay, goodbye my friend.....

UPDATE: The days pass and it isn't getting any easier, this is a real rough one for sure. I am thinking the only way to get some resolve, some peace, which may never come, is to take the drive to Cape Cod for Jay's wake and funeral, which I think I have to do. The past few days of excessive drinking is not helping, I have to wake up the next day and remember what I guess I am trying to forget.... this sucks.

Sorry I didn't do anything more than wave when Walker Evans and I walked by your house today, Mark. I figured there was nothing else to talk about but Jay and there's nothing I can add to make it feel any better, and you were much closer to him than I, so it didn't seem like anything else could be done.

My sincere condolences.
