Ken Garabadian My Friend

Around thirteen months ago the world lost a great man and I lost a great friend and one of the most amazing people I have ever met.
He was a spiritual giant and a kind, kind man. ( and Bleeping Smart!)
We met at my first real job out of the Army and remained close for over twenty years.
I had a tremendous urge to Blog about Ken when he passed, but honestly it was too raw for me then, too personal. In many ways it still is.(Not a week goes by that I don't miss the funny emails and marathon phone calls.)
Truth be told, with Ken gone, the world is a little less fun.

Harvard Magazine has done a feature story on Ken, you can look at it here.
Every day is precious.
