For me, 2019 was mostly good, but the last month was absolutely devastating. My best friend of 40 years and the only person from college that I kept in touch with was hit by a car and passed away the following day. Abe and I were both active in the gay square dance community, so I spoke at his home club (DC Lambda Squares, Washington, DC) the day after his death and also at my home club's (Independence Squares, Philadelphia, PA) annual holiday dance two days later. The local gay square dance communities have been very supportive, but particularly those people who I also share a love of board gaming with.
