Late night mail

Late last night I got an e-mail from a friend I hadn’t seen in a while, Lucien. It said to ring him urgently, about Charles, another friend I haven’t seen in a while. You can tell it’s going to be bad news when you get a message like that. And it was. Charles died suddenly last Friday.

The service is on Thursday. I’ll go… he came to my wedding, it’s the least I can do to go to his funeral.
