    Couldn't agree more. I love hearing memories of my father and brother.

    So true! I will treasure all of those 21 yrs i had my sweet generous son Justin. He will always be with me as i travel this journey. I would say to others that find it painful to be around the loved ones left to try and move past that. No words are needed sometimes just hugs and support.

    This truly resonates within me. My best friend and his partner lived in the townhouse next door to me before I bought my house. One night in June, he knocked on my door and sobbing told me that his partner of 11 years, a man that he'd nursed through HIV, was leaving him for someone else. He was devastated! For the next year, he did his best to get over this hurt, and when he lost his job here in Central Florida, had to move back up north to find work. He then met the love of his life - he had just turned 53 and his new love was a younger man and a doctor! The were so happy and planning a trip here to Sanford - He wanted so badly to see the house I bought, and help me decorate it! This was January of 2011, and on February 22, 2011, his new partner kissed him goodbye on his way to work, and told him to take it easy (He had the flu). Apparently, my friend's heart was so full of love and happiness that his heart stopped beating. I miss him so much, and still stay in touch with his partner.

    I understand exactly what you mean fit. I was visiting my best friend 2 years ago this October and her husband was sick, We thought it was just a chest cold. He was being stubborn and would not go to the Dr. no matter how much we begged and she yelled at him to go. One morning we all woke up and Laura and I were having breakfast. He said he was feeling much better and even asked her to make a grocery list and he and my son would go to the store. He just wanted to stretch out his back for a little while. About 40 minutes later she went in to check to see if he needed anything and he had passed away. The think he had a pulmonary embolism. To this day I still have trouble talking to Laura about that day. Two weeks later we lost another very close friend from high school. I can't talk to her husband or children at all, It is too painful.

He is seeing someone now and frankly I hate to say this but I am a bit angry at that. I know I shouldn't feel that way and I feel guilty for it. But I still miss her terribly and I feel as though he has forgotten about her when I can't.

So I do understand your feelings. It will take time but eventually you will be able to talk to his family. Life moves on, and we loved them dearly, but they have gone on to a better place. Remember the good times... Keep those memories close to your heart, and I hope they give you comfort.

    I don't feel I lost the ones who died , I still feel them close even if I can't see them (THAT would be scary emoticon )

    Lost my best friend recently and I miss him so much. I have been refusing to see his daughter or widow because it is too painful to be reminded of how I will never have that friendship again.
