I got an email a little earlier this evening informing me that an old college bud committed suicide over the weekend. I hadn't seen him since college. We were supposed to hang out during my last book tour when I was going to be in Chicago, but he was called out of town for business. Of course, just like before, I thought it was no big deal. We'd catch up sooner or later. I'm starting to think ... maybe these things are bigger deals than we realize.
