“I’m tired of losing friends.”

I say that a lot. Being that I live in a college town, lots of people I know move to places like Oregon and San Francisco.

This isn’t that. You’re never prepared for things like this, no matter how much you might think you are.

Right now I’m in a fog and I feel like I’ve been hit with something very, very heavy.

“What’s up, Hogs” would come the greeting when I’d see him outside of Maes. He said it unlike anyone else I know.

“Not much, Doctor,” was my usual reply. I’m not sure how that started…one day he greeted me as “Doctor” and I pretty much greeted him as “Doctor” from then on. Well, when I wasn’t calling him “Dirty Scrilla, the vanilla thrilla in manilla magilla gorilla killa” or “Big Daddy Danny V.”

UPDATE: Apparently, the “Doctor” thing is from Spies Like Us which I feel really stupid for not getting until now.

He was truly the best of us. Always ready with a smile or a hug (or a drink), Dan Valentine was one of the most wonderful people I have ever had the pleasure to know and he will be missed, not only by me, but by pretty much every person he ever met.

I could probably write more about Dan, but it’s hard through the tears and I don’t think I could capture Dan’s spirit as eloquently asJimbo,so why try?

It should also be noted that he made the best god damn grilled cheeses I’ve ever eaten.

Rest in peace, Doctor.
