I was right. He had a stroke last year at 50. Multiple DUI's. Lost his license, but still drives. 6 hospitalizations. 2 stints in rehab. I can't help him and it's unfair that he ask me to witness his suicide. This man was once one of my closest friends, my brother. Handsome, talented, smart, funny. It's not even like seeing his ghost. There is no resemblance. Still drinks. No desire to fix himself. Spending time with him, listening to his slurring suddenly made my daily nightcap a lot less desirable.
