Sad but oh so true tale. I searched for a really good friend a couple weeks ago. I found who I thought was him 10 years ago in a library telephone data base. Unsure, I never called. Something like your unmade ftiend request.
This time the search led me to his photo and obituary on a funeral homes website. It rocked me like an earthquake. I’ve been planning a trip back to Big Sur, California. Don and I were best buds there. Many campfires, star filled skies, stories, and songs. He even put me up for a while in his Airstream trailer.
The obit written by his girlfriend summarized him perfectly.
The epitaph read: “His kindness and generosity never wavered.”
That was Don Loughridge. A rare human being. One of The Best I’ll ever know.

Thanks for your touching story. It truly is an amazing tale.
