    NO DOUBT! I was a tad smarter at getting away with stuff and the police were a lot less asinine when I was growing up

    We are keeping in touch mostly by email. I just got back from visiting my old friend who is also getting on day by day; he is doing good today.

    I will just have to wait to see what happens. Things have turned around in life for people...who knows? With the amount of positive energy in this thread alone I would not be surprized to see a condemned man get better.

    I really feel for your son. I saw my boys go through their mothers passing.
    It made me cry to see them hurt.
    Damn, won't most of us go through this? Get prepared?
    Yea sure.
    If you need a loan or donation let me know.
    Keep in touch with your son.
    My thoughts and prayers are with you to comfort your child.
    You know, Its tough being a Man.
    We need all the friends we can get in this world. Roy

    It feels like they are going through the calm before the storm right now. What is really strange is that things usually happen in the middle of the night. I hate it when my phone rings in the middle of the night, it's never good.

    Maybe I can get my truck fixed before this all comes tumbling down. Hopefully my son and his mom will be getting along after Robert has passed. The women in her family were all a bit whacko so maybe my son and her can help each other after Robert is gone. Who knows..."life is what happens to us while we're busy making other plans."

    Robert passed away just before 2 am this morning. I don't even know if he was a drinking man, but it seems like this was his idea of last call.

    Eric says that while Robert never actually woke up he did respond to questioning by smiling and squeezing Eric's hand when asked questions. Because of the way Robert reacted during his last hours, Eric feels that he was happy and feels that Robert was ready to move on.

    This is coming from a young man who has in the past been quite negative about my faith. Evidently, Robert too was a man of faith and I get the impression that Eric got to see some direct results of having faith by being with Robert in his last days as a mortal man.

    Thank you all for accompanying me through this. Now I just have to get down to see Eric because I know he is real vulnerable about death right now.

    Robo, glad to see you are helping your son, and going down to be there for him.

    Drive safe.

    I am sure you son will lose it when he sees you on person, and is thankful to still have you there.

    Every time I read this I think

    Robin has an ex husband?????? I don't see the 's quick enough. I'm glad he went easy. Only way to go. He got the easy part and he's done now. Everybody else still has to deal with the loss. I hope I die peacefully, in my sleep, like my grandfather did. Not screaming and panicking like the rest of the passengers in his car.

    Just lost a friend of mine with the same thing. R.I.P. and I wish the best for your son and yourself. Life isn't always fair...

    I don't think that there is anything you can say that will make your son feel better. Knowing Dad is there is enough. Roy

    Hey RoBo

    I'm glad to see Robert was able to go in peace with loved ones by is side and also to see your son Eric able to lean on a man that has values and cares for the wellbeing of his son instead of the petty past with the ex. God Bless you both and keep the faith.

    Thanks all. I haven't heard anything today. I know they must all be about numb while being busy doing what needs to be done. I am shooting for this weekend. I really do not want to be there during the funeral. That may be awkward for Robert's family who don't know who I am. Aside from that, I am really a terrible person when it comes to death. I simply do not know how to act or react, so I tend to avoid as much as I can.

    My only reason for going to see Eric is because he has asked me to be with him for a couple of days. That, I understand.

    According to Eric, his mom "lost it". I am not sure what he means by that but as harsh as this may sound; I don't trust her. Hopefully she doesn't sucker him into the emotional roller coaster she put me through several times in our marriage.
