Friday I learned that someone I cared about in the rooms...I knew him as Greg, though it seems quite a few people called him Ernie...died. Given his behavior over the past month, we're 99.99% sure he died an alcoholic death. Another friend in the rooms said I should get used to this happening - I neither want to nor do I think that will happen.
His obituary is here.
And, now, today, we're all a little gunshy. Another friend was supposed to go with me and another AA to see Gravity this weekend. He did not show. He missed an appointment with a sponsee on Sunday, and today we still haven't heard from him. And I'm a little freaked out.
I do not want to lose anyone else...especially this second person, I'm much closer to him. :(
