I’m in shock this morning. A friend that I’ve been playing tennis with every Friday morning for the past few months, died in his sleep this past weekend.
He was older than I had thought, but still young enough that it’s still shocking. He was in excellent shape. He did spin classes, tennis, squash & a multitude of other sports weekly.
We were both quite similar. He loved to travel, play sports, seize the day. It wasn’t uncommon for him to go to the beach for the day, like myself. A person who always greeted you (a rarity in this world), & was genuinely interested in discussion.
A few weeks ago he arranged for 4 of us to visit a private tennis court (court tennis that is). We partnered up & played doubles for 3 hours in the blistering sun. It was one of the most enjoyable sporting events I’ve been privileged to play in & I’ve been hungering to do it again.
You will be missed, Bruce Bogenrief
