Heaven must have sent you from above

We were softened up quite a bit earlier today with the news that Jerry Leiber has died. But now comes word that Nickolas Ashford of Ashford & Simpson has also left us.

That's way too much to absorb all at once.

No other sound is quite the same as your name
No touch can do half as much to make me feel better
So let's stay together

So long, Nick, and heaven rest your soul.

We'll get a proper tribute up later.

I used to read the announcements for engagements, weddings, and births to keep up with what my acquaintances were experiencing. Then I began reading the obituaries, to keep track of those friends' parents deaths. Now the obits report the deaths of those I new personally. It is sobering and such an in-my-face reminder of how life is way too short.

Enjoy 'em while you have 'em.
