Jeff, while you are here, and especially after all that has happened today........do know that you are always a true and close friend of mine. I think you know that, but we went from some strange circumstances on the first Wyoming trip to being great friends and then roommates on the last Wyoming trip. I care a lot about you and I really enjoyed being around you on the last Wyoming trip. Like Rich, you are a special person.

I have just logged on to discover this awful thing has happened. I remember reading Rich's thread through his early struggles and thought how wonderful it was he had found such terrific support from all his friends here.

Yeah I have another video.....and another one dedicated to Rich and Lee........I guess I just don't want any of us to forget the love the two of them found after so many of Rich's years being unhappy and confused........I just can't forget those first pictures of the happiest family I ever saw........not only Rich, but Lee, and Elizabeth and Lee's kids.......that is a happiness I have hardly ever seen in this life.........I thought it could exist and they showed it could.........

Thanks for that quote.  It's appropriate, and I intend to use it and remember it.

Just on the cusp of young womanhood, and to lose her daddy like this, so unexpectedly. Just breaks your heart to think about it.  :'(

Yes, it does. I hope she gets all the love and support she needs in this disaster.

Judy, it's good to see you here.

I was away for a few hours, and dang, the bad news is still true.

I wish good rest to everyone.

Have a good rest yourself, Clarissa.
The night is over for me. I shut down the computer at 2:45am, but still couldn't sleep at first.

I'm leaving town tomorrow but if you put the information up in this thread, I do want to send a donation for Elizabeth's education when I get back.


Thanks for the hug, Debbie, and I hug you back, and yes, me too, what you said about the donation.

Woke up at 3:30am, in the middle of wonderful dream that, somehow, was slightly tinged with anxiety. Then when I fully woke up, I had myself an old-fashioned, full-blown anxiety attack. Back in the shower for more water therapy with blubbering.

Wow. This really stinks.

Hi, Chrissi. Hugs. This is like a wake. isn't it. What am I saying, there is no 'like,' it is  a wake.

Still horrible. Oh well....
