    Just venting I guess but two car guys I know that are in their earlier 20's got t boned by an out of control truck and died today. My engine builder/the reason my dad is into cars got diagnosed with pancreatic cancer (cancer that spreads the fastest and has the least research into it) last week, and a family friend passed away from a snowmobile accident 2 weeks ago. I don't know if its because of the weather or what, but they're all so close together.

    Seems like after my wife died all I would see is one thread after the other somewhere on the 'net where someone had lost a loved one or close friend. Got to the point I didn't even want to sign on.

    One of my best friends passed away two nights ago, service is tomorrow, brain cancer got him.
    I was his best man at his wedding and we go back to grade school days, my best hunting buddy is gone at the age of 53.

    First off sorry to hear Ryan that's a lot to be dealing with all at once. Especially the young guys taken in the car accident I know all too well what it's like to lose a friend that way and it's hard to get your head around and accept.

    As for everyone else it does seem like it's been a bad year and my condolences to each and every one of you. I didn't lose anyone I was particularly close with but lost 2 co-workers recently both long before their time (52 heart attack and 46 dirt bike accident)

    I lost a very close friend (more like a younger brother) several years ago and in a very unusual way his life and future were somewhat imposed on me... One thing I've learned is live your life in a way that honors those you have lost.... mourn but don't dwell as the one's you lose would certainly want you to enjoy the life you have.
