This entire past week has been hard. Everyday thinking about what we were doing a year ago. Going out for crab legs at one of those crappy China buffet joints and getting sick on Tuesday... Drinking at Dizzy's on Wednesday and Friday... blowing off work (me due to a hangover) and the two of us going to the boat races.... Watching him do his first ever stoppie returning from a bikini car wash down in Joliet on Saturday.... (Ugly, but a stoppie nonetheless. )
I've had a hard time coming to peace with Gerard's passing. It's been difficult coming to understand, to let go, to forgive, and to move on. I miss him, feel like I've had a hole in my life where he was, and think of him daily. My prayers go out to his parents, his sister, his relatives, and his many, many friends, but most of all, to him.
Take care, G.
My prayers are also with those close to him.
There are so many distractions in life but it is important to remember that you never know when your last breath will be. The same goes for those close to you. That is why I have made sure to accept Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior and I am 100% sure my eternity is sealed in heaven. I share that truth with others as well because I want them to have the same gift. Some will laugh or think down upon me for saying these things but I know it is truth and I live by the peace, hope, and purpose the Lord gives me. I am sorry if this is a discomfort to hear at this time but know that I intend it as a blessing. May your friends life leave a legacy on you and the others he knew and may your lives be enriched because of it. Again, I will pray for his family, friends, and you.
