Default A very sad day for me

As if this week wasn't bad enought with my stepdads funeral Monday. Last night at about 10pm my phone rings. I also get a text message at the same time. I don't bother getting up right away. Right after that my wife walks in to the room as says, you better go to the other computer. You have something there. Also check myspace. I have several Emails. Yesterday a very good friend of mine, a fellow performer was killed when a van lost control and crossed the median strip on the interstate in New Mexico striking his car head on. He was on his way to California to perform at a ren faire. He was only a year older then me and a very close friend. I will miss him greatly. He was trully a great man and loved by everyone.

Jim will be missed.

Dam, Sorry to hear about your friend Dan. What a gloomy day today. Heavily overcast and rain coming. I have to go to a funeral myself today at 1. Not a personal friend but the father of one. I hate these things. I will Pray for the people left here to cope with the loss. These things constantly show us how quickly life can end for some, and turn upside down for the people close to them.

Dan, I am truly to sorry about the loss of your friend and your step father. There are no real words that I can say to remove the grief or to make it easier to cope with, but your friends are your crutch and you should rely on them. If you need anything or even just an ear....you know how to reach me. Again...my condolences to you.

I am also at a loss as to what I could say. Just know that we all care about you here and I personally am grateful for all the help you have given me when I needed advice.

I'm to very sorry for your loss. We live in a cruel world and sometimes life gets really hard to deal with. Please take care and please don't let this weigh you down to the point of hopelessness. We are only a phone call away.

Losing family members is hard enough, losing close friends can be just as hard if not harder.

Hang in there little buddy!
