So Long, My Friend


My friend and fellow blogger Mike Wolf died last night.

The comments section on his last post has become an impromptu memorial to him.

The last time I had seen him was about a month ago; I surprised him by travelling up to visit him while he was in the hospital. I gave him some DVDs and some CDs to listen to to help him pass the time.

I was chatting with him on IM yesterday; he told me that he had to loan me the DVDs I’d given him so he’d have someone to talk to about them. He was passionate about pop music (Elvis Costello in particular), baseball (unfortunatley, his beloved Tigers were perennially out of it), and obscure movies. Mike had just started a new relationship and was happier than I’d seen him in a really long time. He was talking on the phone with his girlfriend when he passed away.

Mike Wolf was my friend, and I shall miss him terribly.

Other bloggers remember our dear, dear friend:
* Lady Crumpet * Deano
* Linus * A Picture of Me * Daniella * This Fish * Ken Goldstein * Zeebah * Krissa


i've been writing comments on so many blogs; his life was so rich with friends who loved him.

mike was the first person who wrote to me when i first started blogging. he said he was paul's friend and had stumbled upon my site. he was my first introduction to the positive energy and good life on the blogosphere.
