The news of Jane Gray’s death hit me like a brick to the head. I knew things were not good but I anticipated her recovery. She was my daughter in-law’s mother. She was a wonderful person.
Moments later I received a phone call telling me my childhood friend had just passed away in Dayton, Ohio. From that moment through the next week the memories of the two of us growing from young boys to college age men filled my head. These were memories only he and I shared.
