I am Bill O’Brien, “Saul” to many of Jake’s friends. As I was to Jake for oh-so many years. Funny what can happen early in life when you make seemingly meaningless choices. Like an Irish kid going to a high school that’s heavily Jewish. Those long bus rides down Blue Hill Avenue for so many years capped it. It’s hard to say good-bye to a friend I’ve held so close for so long. Rosa, thank you for loving him for so many years. It sustained him. And made him a darn nice person. Here’s to you, my friend!
