This makes all of the other bull**it we deal with all the time really put into perspective....
I miss my friend
Although I haven't been posting in the lounge for as long as some of you and therefore didn't know him as well as some of you, I can honestly say that for the time I've been on here Swami's post nails it. He came across as Real.
RIP and may God bless your soul.

Its really going to hit me on Labor Day.
We just talked last week making sure he was going to be at the tailgate. He was planning to meet up with a group of us before the game. I posted some pics on the smackboard thread.
I am still in shock.
He and I spoke often...he was there for me during a tough time last year and always had a shoulder to cry on and an ear to lend...and he never complained about my venting.
He seemed tough on the outside...but he was truly a sentimental guy on the inside.
I will miss my friend.

i've teared up a couple of times these past 2 days thinking about him. i never had any contact outside of here, but he made me laugh, probably more than anyone else around here. we will miss him a lot, and like swam said, he is irreplaceable.
i just checked my fan page, and he had left two posts there, that i never saw until today. i could sense he was a special person, and now all the comments confirm it. i'm praying for your family, cause i know you are in a good place- semper, watch over us...

Condolences to you Becca, and all of the others who were close to him. I wish I had known him personally. I am saddened that I never will. Once again, thoughts and prayers to the friends and families, the World lost a good one.
