My mom called me from work Thursday and told me my best friend of 10 odd years died, he was only 32 ( i'm 31) he died of a possiable heartattack
He'd just moved back to town 2 months ago and my mom only saw him twice before christmas, she went to his funeral last night for me because I'm 6 hrs away in another state w/ no transportation,sitter or extra cash to get there
which is making his death even harder, I just got him added to my yahoo messenger, and was waiting on him to add me to Myspace, So i can talk to him again - I haven't seen him in several years, After his dad's accident, and he was put in a nursing him, he split, moved to florida, and I guess lived in N.Carolina for a while then came back to Ohio
My mom said the funeral was aweful, it didn't look like him at all, his chest was swelled, his face was deformed she said one side was all puffy, one side was long and just didn't look like him
The preacher didn't really speak of him, mentioned his name and the different places where he lived, then the preacher went on to talk about how after he was done there he was going to meet up w/ some friends who are passing through and going out to eat dinnner with them
You don't talk about stuff like that when your supposed to be giving a funeral service.
she said there was only like 3 things of Flowers and a small teddy bear, and in the casket was pics of his nieces and nephews, But not all of them, he's got a younger sister with 5 kids her family photo was not there, just a picture of her and him
my boyfriend isn't a person i can talk to , or just talk about it to him to get it off my chest he's more of the type of person with the outlook of " the person's dead, you can't do anythign about it, leave it at that'
my mom got one of the little card things that you get at a funeral ( i forget what it's called) she said they normally have a script from the bible in them, but his had more of a poem and she read it to me as best as could through the tears - It matched him to a T, she's going to Mail it to me
unfortunally from moving so much I've lost all my photos including all the photo's of him - except for ONE that is in a picture frame at my parents house, I made for my mom one year for Mothers day, she was like a 2nd mom to all my friends, ( i didn't have many), and he would come out every weekend and spend the night - he told my mom when he saw her at the post office the week before xmas, he'd like to come down and spend a few nights with her like old times ( of course my mom wasn't too keen on that, I no longer live there it's just her and dad, and it was much different when we were teens growing up) any way the gift I made my mom had pictures of me, him and my other friend and my half brother and she's always held that gift dear to her heart mainly because i made it my self, but also because it was a family photo sort of thing of all her "kids" even know i was her only kid :-)
I miss him so much, He always had a smile on his face, never let nothing get him down, he could make even the biggest prune laugh
I was so excited when my mom told me he had moved back to town, and had access to the internet, I couldn't wait to speak to him because I miss him so much, Since i haven't seen him in so long he didnt even know I had any kids
ok Sorry for the rant, it's just hard when you don't have a supportive 'better" half
