Goodbye Roy

My neighbor across the street passed away this morning. He wasn't very old at all. He was like 64. He use to sit out on his porch, drink beer and holler over at me if I was outside. I use to hate it because I couldn't understand his mumbling after he had been drinking. That and he would repeat himself a lot. It's funny how now I am going to miss that.

He woke up this morning and said he wasn't feeling well. His wife after a while, went to check on him to see why he hadn't left for work. He had gone down in some room and his body was blocking the door and she couldn't get in. Don't know the details just that when someone did get to him, he was already cold. The Paramedics arrived and pronounced him dead. That was around ten this morning. Then the police came and finally the coroner about one o'clock and took him away. His family went through a lot today. I hope he rests in peace. I liked him.

Sorry to hear about your neighbor loss. Maybe the alcohol did him in?
