Tribute to a dear friend

edited June 2012 in Forum List
Just wanted to post this on here for my sake.  Lost a dear friend this week in a motorcycle accident.  He was an avid egger and convinced me to buy one.  I'm glad I took his advice.  He also turned me on to this forum.  Almost weekly I would send him pics of my cooks and he would send me pics of his.  Often we would go over to his house and he would cook for us and we would hang out and laugh and joke.  I'm going to miss him terribly.  Never again will I get to text him and say "Hey Bryan, whatcha cooking this weekend"

    Sorry for your loss. I have a similar friendship with an old military buddy, but we don't live close enough to go to each others house. BBQ something for him.

    Sorry for the loss. As an avid rider and from a riding family its always hard to hear of another fellow rider losing his life in an accident.

    Losing someone close is one of the hardest things that you can go through, but with friends like the ones on this forum, I can only hope we ALL, can help you through to better times.

    Dude it's hard. It doesn't get better either. Lost a couple of dear friends lately without any accidents. One of them worked with me for over thirty years. The girls in the office put up his picture and I am pretty close to tears every time I walk by it. The girls don't know our history

    Sorry for your loss.  Think doc might be correct, and I might just may steal that doc.

    Here is a poem sent to me several years ago. Hope it comforts you.

    All Is Well

    Death is nothing at all, I have only slipped into the next room
    I am I and you are you
    Whatever we were to each other, that we are still.
    Call me by my old familiar name,
    Speak to me in the easy way which you always use
    Put no difference in your tone,
    Wear no forced air of solemnity or sorrow
    Laugh as we always laughed at the little jokes we enjoyed together.
    Play, smile, think of me, pray for me.
    Let my name be ever the household world that it always was, 
    Let it be spoken without effect, without the trace of a shadow on it. 
    Life means all that it ever meant.
    It is the same as it ever was, there is unbroken continuity.
    Why should I be out of mind because I am out of sight?
    I am waiting for you, for an interval, somewhere very near,
    Just around the corner,
    All is well.

    Sorry for your loss. Was he riding the "tail of the dragon"? If so, I heard about it on the local news.

    Haven't been on here for a couple of weeks.  Amazing to see the outpouring of love here.  Thanks guys!  And I taught his son how to clean the ashes out of the egg tonight.  Passing the torch!
