It’s been almost two weeks since Dan, my best, friend left this earth. He left quickly. About 5 weeks after leaning he was riddled with cancer. For some reason today has been especially hard. I miss him. I want to call as I did so many thousands of times. I just want to share a new wave image from Molokai with him. It really stings. Then I stop and remember all of the incredible memories I have. We co-led 40 tours in 10 years together. We traveled the world doing this. We met so many incredible people, many whom we now call friend. What a blessing. What a gift. I have his corny jokes to remember, if I can… I have the memories of how kind he was to my wife, daughter and grandkids. He knew what to say to encourage and love them. I will miss that and I know they will too. I know this will pass and the grief will become easier, but, right now, it is hard. If you’re reading this… thank you for holding me in my grief. I need that right now….
