Please send your thoughts, prayers and good vibes to my good friend and her family. On Tuesday morning, my friends' younger brother was found dead. He was 22 years old and the bassist in an up and coming band called Tickle Me Pink. They were releasing a new cd that day and had a signing and celebration scheduled. Instead, we are all mourning the loss of an incredible young man. My friend and I met while on Semester at Sea. As roommates, we enjoyed sailing around the world together and becoming a little less blind to the world we live in. My heart aches for her and her family as they cope with this terrible loss.
And to make things a bit more surreal, my friend is getting married on July 19th! What an incredibly difficult prelude to the festivities. E- I am sending all my love and strength your way! You WILL get through this and I know Johnny will be right there with you on your big day!
