My co-worker and friend "KB" passed away last night following a six-month battle with cancer. She was one of the nicest women I've ever met. She was always very quiet, sweet, thoughtful, and as the team lead in her section, she was very efficient and hardworking. The accounting department lost a friend and valued member today, but we will always remember the happy times we shared with KB.

Rest in peace.

Re: In Memory Of...

This past june my childhood friend (i've known him since i was about 11) passed away in an electrocution accident while on back packing trip out in Switzerland. He was honestly one of the nicest people I have ever met. It was such a shame too, he had so much ahead of him. A few years back he was drafted into the NHL and was just getting his career going.


RIP Bryan <3

My best friend Bob, whom I've known since eighth grade, died of a brain aneurysm a few years ago.

Ditto! You are a good son! I'm not religious, but if there are blessings to be had for being a good son, you got a ton of them!

Your bit about the bad jokes...is that a dad thing? My Dad used to do that, too. And laugh at them with this funny laugh and expression. I can see it now. **tears up**

Re: In Memory Of...

In memory of Molly, my longtime cat companion who passed away suddenly a few evenings ago after what I'd like to think and hope was a very happy life with myself and my family.

Rest in peace, baby. You were a pink-nosed little doll and we loved you so much.

Re: In Memory Of...

I lost my sister Susie in September of 2011. It wasn't totally unexpected, but it was shocking to me nonetheless.

It's one thing when someone older passes, like a grandma or something, but when you lose a sibling, mortality stares you right in the face.

Her last few years weren't easy, as she was mentally ill. It was hard on everyone, including her. She kind of lost the will to live after the death of her youngest daughter a few years before.

As you get older, so many go. I miss my grandmas and grandpas, aunts and uncles, cousins, school friends and just people I know.

I think about them at different times of the year. Grandma, I miss most at Thanksgiving. Susie was born in November, so I think of her more then.

My latest loss is that of a friend last September. He was only 2 years older than I but bad diabetes coupled with alcoholism did him in.

Middle age is when the sins of one's youth can catch up with one. Drinking - bad eating - the body can only take so much.

I've had a good life and part of it was due to these people now gone. They are gone from the earth, but until the day I draw my last breath, they are in my memories and in my heart.
