Well, they just zipped the body up in a body bag.

Rigor had started to set in, and there's something very distinctive about the movement of a body with rigor.

There's no blood or anything, and he had a lighter in his hand. Looks like he was lighting up a cigarette and had either a heart attack or a stroke and just keeled over.

They're taking his cat too. I was at least able to tell them that he had a cat.

Everyone is clearing out.

I knew Roger. We weren't exactly drinkin buddies, but we were friendly neighbors. He had a green thumb and had a pretty decent backyard with lots of plants. Nice guy, pretty mellow. Don't know how old he was, but I'd say late 40's or early 50's.

Looks like they're all gone now. They had at least one detective, and it looks like the medical examiner was taking pictures. I suppose it's just procedure.

I feel...

I don't want to go to sleep. I don't want to be alone. I want to go somewhere where there are people and loud music, I want to hang out with friends.

This is gonna be a hard night.

I didn't catch this yesterday.

I'm sorry. This so sucks. At least it was natural, and a fairly fast way to go.

Whoa.... shit. Just saw this now. I'm so sorry, hon. Hope you found some warm arms to snuggle in, that night... it sounds like comfort and security were paramount.

**sends lots more hugs, 'cause they're good to have on hand**
