    Isn't it funny how when a close friend

    or relative dies we realize how awful we were to them? Or, at the very least, how we simply deflected them? My old college friend Andy has been gone for about 3 years and I still think about all the times I could of done better; I think to myself "oh, why didn't I invite home...

    A really good friend of mine passed away in the

    One of my best friends from childhood committed

    suicide just before we were set to graduate high school. He didn't leave a note so nobody really knows why. That was almost fifteen years ago, and I still struggle with it. We had grown distant as we got into junior high and high school, and I'm still haunted by the question...

    I lost a good friend of mine a few years ago.

    He went out to sea on a fishing trip with four other guys I grew up with and got caught in a bad storm. They never found them. It still breaks my heart to think about it.

    Fare well Major Tom. RIP.

    Sad we loose David Bowie. He was an incredible influence on music and culture. I don't think there will ever be such as soul as his. He will be missed.

    while on a hiking accident. She was just walking and out of nowhere the rock she was on became dislodged and fell to her death, with this massive boulder coming down to crush her, killing her instantly. Thankfully she didn't suffer, but she was a wonderful person of only 20...

    Her name was Keisha and we grew up in church

    together. She was two years older than me, but one grade ahead; she was retained in one of the earlier grades, just as I was. We gravitated towards each other because we were considered โ€œoutsidersโ€. Outsiders in the House of the Lord? Yes, outsiders in the House of the Lord...

    On Saturday it'll be a year

    since we lost him. I think about him all the time and wonder why at 28, his life ended. He was beautiful and kind. But something shifted, sadness took over, and in a blind moment a bottle of pills dimmed his beautiful light. I will miss him forever.

    Two of them in particular.

    The one, who I'd known since elementary school, died as a result of a motorcycle accident back in 1996. The other, who I'd known since 8th grade, was a Navy SEAL who was killed over in Kosovo in 2000. Not a day goes by that I don't think about them.

    who died. He struggled with addiction for a while. In and out of the hospital from accidental over doses. Rehab. Sobriety programs. He was doing really well. I'm not sure what happened and caused him to relapse. He was so happy to be clean and sober. He couldn't wait to say that...

    My best friend died when we were 15 years old.

    He had leukemia and he died before I expected him to. Actually I expected him to survive, however, he did not make it a month after he was diagnosed. I miss him very much. We went through school together for 10 years and we were very close. I miss him so much.
