“My friend died last night. I found him early this morning.
Todd Matthew Williams was just 51. He suffered from congestive heart failure—at least that’s what we guessed. Despite a life of work—six years in the US Army, several years teaching Native American children on a reservation in South Dakota, several years working for a nonprofit in Albuquerque, driving truck in Portland—Todd had no health insurance. He never went to the doctor and so he died. Young.”
