The end of August marks a large painful milestone in my life, the death of a great friend David Derko. I was the last person to talk with him 2001 before he took his own life. Now nine years later the feelings still have not died, they are the same as they ever were. He and I knew each other at age 3 and shared many adventures together thru the many years we knew each other. For the dead, thier pain is over for the living it remains. See you buddy in about 40 years or so.
