it's crazy how many people he has talked to in his short life. Within months of deciding on his choice of living downtown he intergrated himself wit the group. He was always able to work with the current situation and make the better than best of it. This shit is fnin craczy, a girl I hardly know told me about the news story about it all. He was so stupid all the time about his "stuff". I was literaly 25' away watchging a mivie. Did he ask me for help NO

now I'm sitting here wondering what I csn do and doing what I shouldn't

Just remember, he's still around....you just can't see him. There's always tough spots in life and you have to decide if you're going to use it as a stumbling block or a stepping stone. You can give up because you're in mourning or you can go the extra mile and think "This is for you Dad".

I know that I can't even begin to understand how you feel right now, but what I do know is that you have to stay strong.

I'm sorry, just seeing this as I've had my hands full with my own family the last two days.

I'm sorry that you're facing this, I can't imagine how tough it is. Your entire family is in our prayers.

I just wanted to say thanks to all on here. It's been a week now and seems like only a few hours. It's amazing how many people just want to help. Now almost everyone is gone, after tomorrow it will only be my little sister and myself around. I think then I will notice the emptiness of it all. Everywhere I go around here I see things he was involved with, and now I have to finish it all.

It will hurt bad for a while yet. The Shock of it all will start to wear down. Everyone is different. Hang in there , what your going through is normal. When your ready read up on it on the net it may help you. They say there are 5 stages that everyone has to deal with.

Not sure how often you talked to him but the first time it hit me the most was when I needed some advice on something I had to do around the house. I turned to him often for advice on so much stuff; home repair, marriage, etc. What I miss the most is just sitting down and talking to him and catching up on things and just BSing over his coffee and my soda.
