The world is quiet today

This morning my friend and neighbor the man with the tractor suddenly unexpectedly died.
I just saw him a few days earlier at the mailboxes. We talked and smiled. He told me how he was growing his hair long for his high school reunion and how he and his wife planned another Panama cruise. He was happy. He looked well.
I will miss the sound of his tractor. I will miss the kind gentle man who was a friend/neighbor I could count on.
I still haven’t accepted that for now the world has a missing piece, a quite that should not be there, not yet. Too soon.
