    Just found out a good friend of mine died a couple of days ago. He had a heart attack at 54. I'd known this guy all my life, he was almost like an uncle to me. I even worked with him on the dust carts last year. I can't believe he's dead. We'd compare tattoos and talk about motorbikes. And whenever he passed me in his van he'd start singing into these two loud speakers mounted on the top of it. He was a great guy, nearly everyone in my city knew him and liked him. His family have had to hire out the biggest concert venue in the city for his wake because so many people want to come. I can't believe it, I think I'm shock. I've lost 3 people in the last year, my grandad, my neighbour, and now Doc. I'm gonna miss him most of all.

    I also just found out his funeral is gonna be held in the cathedral and there's gonna be a tribute concert for him. He deserves that. He was one of the nicest guys I've ever met.
