I don’t believe Eddie and I called each other on a regular basis. It was typically whenever either one of us felt it was time to simply catch up, or to find out details of the holidays that were coming up. However, there were periods where we would call each other a few times a week just to chat and see what’s new.
Typically, it would be me calling him multiple times a week attempting to get a hold of him, leave a message, wait for a call back, never receive one, and me having to call and leave a message again. I don’t believe anyone would deny Eddie was a busy person, whether it was for work or to be with friends, so I understood his actions.
Occassionally, I find myself sitting in front of my laptop at home and looking over to my right, where the LCD picture frame Danny got me rotates photos of Eddie, and it dawns on me that I can’t simply call Eddie to catch up anymore. Even now, after writing that last line, I had to take a pause and let reality set in. It’s obviously never easy, but some way and some how I’m sure he knows what’s happening in my life, from the mostly mundane to the exciting.
