Default I lost my best friend this weekend....

Many of you know my friend, Jim, who has been boating with me a great deal over the years. We went to Loto the past two years for the shootout together.
Well, he passed in his sleep very peacefully early this Sunday morning. He was, I believe, 54 yrs old and I have known him for at least 51 yrs. We had a lifetime of friendship and hung out together as much as life would let us.
Such a friend that was always there when you needed one! I and everyone that knew him will miss him dearly!

Sorry for your loss. We should all remember life can be to short so make the most of every day and always let the ones you love and care about know how you feel every day not just on special occasions.

So sorry, I lost mine a year and a half ago. The pain is still there. I think of the good times we had. Life is so short, we never know when ours, or a loved one's,will end.I try to live each day to the fullest,nobody ever said how long we will be around. Remember, think of the good times you shared.

In life you have many aquainces, but true friendship like you have is hard to find, just remember, he is still with you and always will be. Good luck to you, and God bless.

I to lost a close freind of 25 years. he to was ironicaly 54 and passed away in his sleep on a sunday morning last Oct. it freaked me out when his wife Cory called me that Sunday morning on the way to the hospital. There is not a day goes by that i do not think of Fred.
It will be a hard journey.
