View Full Version : Sad Times....

I am sitting here tonight with the daunting task of understanding why my buddy was killed two nights ago. Even more so understanding how a very large tree fell on his truck, killing him instantly while he was inside, driving down the street, during high winds. He leaves behind dozens of friends and more importantly a wife and two kids.. Story here:

Very sad to hear. Sending my condolenses and prayers to the family.

Steve, Sorry to hear that dude. I just opened a beer for you. Just got to remember there is a reason for everything.

Steve, sorry for your loss. Always a very hard time for understanding. Throw out rhyme and reason and understand that some accomplish much more in a short time than others. Reflect and celebrate John's accomplishments and all he has meant to everyone around him. Take care and remember the good! I am not that strong but if it were me that is how I would see it and want it to be. :(
PS. This may be the forum to share some great stories about John and his life. We are not as fortunate to have known him. :twocents:

Steve, I am very sorry to hear about your friend. It makes one realize just how fragile we really are and puts everything into perspective.
It really makes me think about how I should be thankful for all of the moments spent with family and friends.
