I can relate Chrissi, the first time I read something he wrote I was hooked, long before I ever knew his face or heard his voice.

Me too.  :-*

Hiya Big Brother.

Your name came up twice this past weekend.  First time was on Friday, I was in NYC having dinner dinner with Larry (OregonDoggie) and John (BayCityJohn) who were passing through town.  Larry was talking about meeting you in San Fran.

On Saturday I was with a group of friends at a BBQ and one of the people there had recently lost her mother, and that started everyone talking about losing those we love, and one of them mentioned seeing me memorialize you on Facebook, so I told your story.

I hope you know how you affected the lives of those around you, and I hope you know how much you are missed.  I think of you almost every day, your pic is up in my cube a few times.

Hope you're looking down on us, and laughing at our continued adventures.


Tell him when l come up to him and ask to play the record, l'm gonna say: ''Voulez-vous jouer ce disque?''
'Voulez-vous, will you kiss my dick?'
Will you play my record? One-track mind!

That's really nice, Chuck.   :-*

I just found this on Facebook, posted to one of my friend's wall.  I think it fits here, even after this time.

"When A Friend Bids Goodbye"
 
My dear friends,
close your eyes...
hold my hand,
and hear me whisper...
 
For the times I was lost,
you were there to look for me.
Will you believe me when I say I love you more than you'll ever know.
Will you trust me when I say ...this time you have to let me go.
 
My dear friends, I must leave.
The world no longer needs me.
It's my time to be gone, until we meet again someday.
Don't you cry now, I know I'll be okay.
Trust that I'll never forget you.
Don't be sad now, just close your eyes until it's through.
Hold my hand, don't open your eyes yet...
wait when I no longer whisper..
 
My dear friends, you'll be fine.
I'll be up there watching over you.
For the times I'll be gone, don't ever forget
the words I whispered to you.
 
God calls on my name... and I have to let go of your hand now...
Please don't cry... and smile for me..
because I'm with the one who made us friends.
 
Remember, I'll always love you.
so come, wave me goodbye...
It'll be painful but we have to...
Hug me, hug me tight, feel the words I can no longer say.

My dear friends, I'm going to miss you.
just pray because I'll always listen.
and one day, when it's your time,
I'll be there for you...
Just like the way I used to.
...I love you...

Hiya Big Brother.

Just wanted to know that your name came up at the AIDS Walk, the "Pizza-Q" at Lisa's house.

I'm not even sure how it happened.   :laugh:  I was talking with Sue, and she and I were talking about different things, and Jackie's name came up, and your name came up, and I got all emotional.

I could just picture you looking down and going "Again little bro?  Again?"

 :laugh:

Miss you, bro.

I can just picture him and Jacki together smiling down on you, and all the Brokies. Our lives are so enriched by knowing them.
Too much to do. . .I don't have time to get old!

That time is rolling around again.



Love you, miss you, wishing so much you were still with us. I hope you are looking down on us, smiling. Holding a protective hand above your daughter and Gene and all your loved ones. Just hoping.
