I wasn't planning on writing anything today.  In fact, the smarter side of me told me not to.  But Dennis probably would have made fun of me for keeping quiet.

God, I loved that guy.  I'll have plenty to say later, but for now, I just want to say how much I loved him.  Like a mentor.  Like an uncle.  Like a best friend.  I missed him the second I knew he was lost.  Our collective experience of this life will all be a little less now that he's gone. 

There is a retrospective celebration of everyone we lose, but I feel like everything that came before today only diminishes what we've lost in my friend Dennis; dilutes what it means to lose.

I am just so sad.
