Gone too soon
I just called one of my best friends, who lives across the country about 3000 miles away to wish him a happy almost Christmas.He answered the phone and I could tell right away something was wrong.

Yesterday 12-23-2011, his only daughter was on her way to work and was hit and killed in a head on car accident. She was a senior in high school, graduating this spring and was planning on going on to college. I had known her a bit as an adult to a teenager; she was a great kid.

Nothing in this life ever prepares you as a parent for this kind of loss. I am too far away to be there to help Dave now, plus jobless so I can't take the trip financially, though I would if I could. It was a short conversation. He said he has to still go to the funeral home, and find her something to wear. There is nothing I can do or say to make the situation any better and the distance only makes it feel more impersonal when I try to say I'm so sorry though I know it is received... and it isn't enough.

Rest In Peace, dear daughter.

Hottea654, sorry for your friend's loss.

Thanks, TM. It's my loss too, though not as obviously so. You can't love someone and not hurt for a loss they experience like that. At least, that's my perception since that is my reality.

I'm so very sorry.

Riding partner, also gone too soon.
Yesterday I got a very late call from Oregon. One of my friends there was calling to tell me a mutual friend of ours lost his life last night in a motorcycle accident with a deer. They found him and his bike after a search this morning when he did not show up at his destination. RIP Mike Worthy, you were always a strong, fun, generous and caring man. I know you would have wanted life to end like that, your own blaze of glory, but you never wanted to go. I grieve your loss.

A video to commemorate his life.
I can't say it much better.

You take care of your self, OK? I am here for you if you need me.

Thanks for your reply Dad of 3. I lost most of yesterday to feeling down regarding this loss, but am feeling more able to focus on life today.
