My dear friend Ted Eytan once asked me, “When are you going to name names? When are you going to tell people the names of the hospitals?” I responded that I already did that as it was happening. Everything was posted in real time with a timestamp.
I was very thankful when Facebook came out with its timeline; now you could see everything that happened without endlessly scrolling through page after page. Today I compiled the most pertinent status lines of the last year of Frederick Holliday’s life.
You can see interesting patterns when you scroll the days of a life.
The first person Fred ever spoke to on Facebook was Christofer.

They were the best of friends, but so were the many other friends that graced Fred’s comment field.
You can see Fred and I loved our boys; you can see we loved each other. You can see what death looks like in the world of social media.
