Loss of a friend

I didn't think this weekend could get worse.

I got a call earlier that a dear friend of mine passed away this afternoon. He had pneumonia and ended up dying from Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome. I am numb, yet in excruciating pain. We used to be so close for years, but because of a few little tiffs we drifted apart the past couple of years. If there were only a way to erase the stupid things we do in life. We are both Gemini. Both have hot tempers and tons of love to give. Both wore out heart on our sleeve. When we had good times they were great. When we clashed... everyone ran for cover. Please God forgive me for the mean things I said to him. His friendship meant the world to me. He had a tough metal exterior, but he was soft and sweet on the inside. He had a good heart and soul. Please take care of him. He will be missed greatly.

To anyone reading this... treat those you love like they are special every day.

Rest in peace my dear friend.

I am really sorry, Ginni... I do know exactly how you feel, and I do not wish that feeling on anyone.

I cant tell you it will get better, just easier to bear somehow, over time. The worst is the guilt over the arguments, or in my case, just being so overwhelmingly busy that I neglected to call as often as I should have. That will fade in time, too.

I am sorry. That is so sad, and so unexpected. I lost a beloved brother the exact same way 3 1/2 years ago.

Thanks Karen. I'm sorry to hear you lost a brother. I know you had a tough life and that had to make it even tougher.

I hope the guilt does fade.

Maureen, I wanted to call you last night but I was a mess and couldn't handle it. I know you adored him as much as I did. We all had so much fun together and so many good times and laughs.

I am still numb.

I still can't believe it.

As I started reading your blog yesterday I felt sad for you and then when I scrolled down and saw NB's pics I started scrolling up and down because I thought you jumped subjects or something.

I wished I would have kept in touch more. I admired him for all he overcame and accomplished.

We need to chat sometime!

Has it been a year and a half since you closed the board? I'm slowly losing contact with everyone, it sucks

This is horrible. I am so sorry for your loss and the loss of his life.

I wish I could say something to make you feel even a little bit better.

Love you,

I am soooo sorry you found out this way, Maureen. He was an awesome guy. Bigger than life. I've never met anyone else like him. He was truly one of a kind.

Remember how much fun we had listening to his WMA radio shows?


Hopefully the chat with everyone may happen! Today is Meg's bday, but I'll install Yahoo later and look for you. It may be tomorrow though. You know you can call me at any time.

Thanks, Chris. You know how much his friendship meant to me.

Remember he was way back on the first GP on Hotboards with us? Dang that was a long time ago.
