Death of an incredible person

Earlier this week I woke up in the middle of the night, sweating due to the high temps and AC not being on. Decided to check email. And learned that my former roommate, Ryan Jones, died this past weekend in a tragic motorcycle accident.

This whole week I have been shaken up by this. All the cliches came to mind. Such a good person. Didn't deserve to die. Too young to die. But so much more came to mind too. His art, his love of nature, his dedication, his ability to follow through on promises. All these things have been in my heavy heart and mind this week. And in the minds of so many others... Just see:

Ryan, do you know how many people are mourning you right now?
