Full of surprises

I played hockey with Carey for many years. There is a stupid macho code where you don't really talk about yourself in the locker room, so I only was able to piece together who Carey really was when we had a beverage afterward in the Boston Pizza in Erbsville. I had some great conversations with Carey about education, science, hockey, life and chicken wings. Sometimes in that order. Carey found it interesting that I didn't like chicken wings and we discussed the various reasons why I didn't think eating them was a good idea for me. One of my claims to fame is that Carey decided to curb his chicken wing eating too. I had actually created a compelling argument to convince someone as smart as him. I was so proud of myself. Later when Jeremy told us he was sick and that it was bad, I bought an adult colouring book full of swear words that I thought may capture the way he was feeling about things. I thought it may give him some relief to colour while waiting or recovering from treatment. A few of us who shared drinks at BP signed it for him. Another guy that played hockey with him sent this in an email to a bunch of us that I thought was fitting: "You would want your son to be like Carey." I couldn't agree more. I will miss my defence partner. Will
