People that leave us too earlyPosted by YMCA on 12/8/12 at 10:32 pm
Have you ever had someone pass away too early and wonder why it was them and not yourself? I had a fried that passed away this afternoon, he actually posts on here, and there is a part of me that wonders why his card was pulled. I know we all have out demons but out of everything I knew about him he was great. He had a wonderful wife and a great little boy. Now I'm left to reevaluate myself as I have a great wife and three great kids and lord knows I'm far from perfect. This is a really tough wake up call. So yes, the OT and TD has lost one of their own. I don't want to post name until all immediate family is notified. I just ask the OT to send out prayers to, we will just say J. R. family. Heads hanging a litle lower today. He was a good one and will be missed.

I'll post his screen name after I talk to his mom but she said there were people on here that may find out based on his screen name and real name so I was asked to wait a day or so before putting it out there. Sorry.

We were good friends. My son and his son are best friends. We were coaching a basketball team together this year and had practice just a couple of hours before the accident. Devastating is the only way to describe it. My son took it hard. Trying to understand the pain his best friend is going through right now. I can only pray that I can be there for them and help his son grow into the man his father would have wanted.
