Swimmer's gone

I hadn't heard from Swimmer. So this morning I phoned the most recent number I had for him at that rest home he was in. I got someone else, who handed the phone over to someone who did know what was up. Swimmer died about three weeks ago. ::sigh:: Even though he wasn't supposed to make it past three months after his diagnosis of inoperable colon cancer in about November 2003, it still feels too soon.

I have to write to his sister. Well, I have a name, and I have the address of his home, which I guess will now go to her, unless Swimmer left it to his niece? Well, I will write there.

Stupid regret: why didn't I get that afghan finished and mailed off to him SOONER?! I didn't send it until the middle or so of August. I don't know the exact date he died, but it's quite possible it was around Sept. 1st, the day I was supposed to have surgery but didn't.

This feels bad, even though it was expected. He was such a fighter.
