Fifteen years to the day ...

... my best friend, Noel Butler, sent me this "Childers By Night" postcard with the message:

Dear Pete, Hope your outlook on the future is not as black as this.
Mine is but that's inevitable.

How prescient this message was became apparent a short two months later when I received a phone call late one night from a woman who introduced herself as Noel's sister and told me that Noel had just passed away.
