Have you ever noticed that? The loss of a good friend is sad... But the loss of someone who gives you free stuff, now that's TRAGIC. And the grief is even more debilitating when not only has the source of free stuff moved on to greener pastures...but when you're left out of the inheritance...that can lead to years long depression...which in turn hinders one's ability to earn for oneself... It's a vicious circle, I tell you.
