RIP David Friel

I just got a message from my old classmate Nena to tell me about the suicide death of a kid we went to school with named David Friel.

We were friends in the 7th grade through junior year of high school. I spent a lot of time at his house and we had a lot of fun acting like complete and total assholes. It was good training for my career as a manager. We had a good time. We grew apart as we decided with wanted different things out of our last couple of years in high school. I haven’t seen either since graduation. It still hits close to home though as I look back and remember the old times.

Chris Finch works with Dave’s wife. I guess Dave was going through a divorce and had just lost his job a few days ago. They say that this time of year has the highest suicide rate. Stuff piles up on a person and they just can’t take it anymore.

RIP old buddy.
