A good friend of mine, Thomas Dedge, died recently. I got to know him over my several years working at Educational Media Services/ITC back in college. He was my manager and became a close friend as we got to know each other. We used to share stories or talk about music, gadgets, or whatever happened to have our interest that particular day. It came as a shocking suprise when I got word that he was no longer with us. I still find it hard to believe. I want to send out my condolences to his wife, family and friends.
I never got to tell you that since I moved to Germany, I have developed somewhat of a taste for beer. I think you would have been excited about this development. While I cannot have a drink with you, I will have a drink for you. I miss you!
