I have no idea how to say this... can't dress it up in pretty euphemisms.
So I'm sorry if this seems blunt, and sorry if this is how you're finding out.

Dave Morrison has died.

My friend of 20 years is dead. I'm torn half way between wanting to breakdown and cry, and wanting to slap him screaming "WHY!".

Louis called me this evening and told me. I don't really remember driving from my place until I got to Chiswick bridge and must of snapped out of the daze. Got to Louis' place Lee-Anne was there, we all seemed pretty spaced I guess. Called people, drank coffee... Lee-Anne and I drove back, I don't remember much of that either.

I checked my messenger archive and Monday night I was chatting with Dave, I asked if he was going to Invocation this Saturday, he said he'd see me there :-(

Oh that's sad - I don't know your friend but I wanted to say something. Thinking of you.

This is very sad news. I think my text summarised it in the best word: "shit".

What gets to me is the number of posts on his Facebook wall over the last couple of days from people oblivious to what had happened. People wanting to meet up with him, people letting him know about gigs. It's sad that he couldn't see how many friends he had and that his feelings of isolation and depression completely masked it all.

I know... On facbook Dave and I have over 24 friends in common... all of them real-life friends.

Our phones are going to go into meltdown with the messages coming in.

So many people loved him so very much.

I don't really know what to say at the moment, but I'm very sorry to hear this.

Thinking of you and Lee-Anne.
