    I am sorry to here of your Friends passing, if you need to talk just drop me a PM. You and your Friends family will be in my Prayers.
  9. yeah, sorry to hear that. stuff like that really sucks.
    we have problems like that in our town too. we have a lake that doesn't look very far across, until you get halfway. we just lost a kid last summer, he was swimming across, got halfway, had an asthma attack, slipped under, and nobody could save him. he was an old neighbor of mine.

    sorry about your loss, i hope you can make it though the tough times, you've got plenty of friends here to talk to!
  10. Sorry for the loss of your friend.

    Thanks everyone. It's good to know that everyone cares. I swear TB is like a second family. Not even my mom said "Sorry" and my step-dad just said "that stinks".

    I Love You Guys...

    but yeah.. apparently since i was the first to know.. of course i had to tell different people... and they told people.. and so many people know... and you have to be here to experience it, or ahve been in a similar situation.. but there is such an outpouring of love from the community... it's hitting everyone hard though... its still extremely tough... but everyone's getting lots of support from people around here...

    there is going to be atleast 200 people at the funeral.. whenever that is..
  13. Tough luck man, I recently lost a friend too.

  14. Man...sorry, I feel for you.
  15. so sorry to hear, bobby. that sucks big time.

    PM or AIM if you need someone to talk bud.
