    Lost a very good friend.

    I just received a message that a very good friend of mine passed away on Nov. 10 from cancer. His family didn't know how to contact me to let me know sooner.

    My friend retired in 2004 and we kind of lost contact with each other from that point on. He was a good man, had a sharp wit about him and was always game for some tom foolery.

    I'm feeling really low right now.

    RIP Larry. You are missed.

    Your loss saddens my heart


    From the little you've said, you better expect to get pranked when YOU get there.

    Sorry to hear of your loss. Your story immediately reminded me of my friend Dale. It was the same kinda deal. I found out about a week after he died. Sucks, he is someone I really miss seeing.

    This is what happens when we get old.
    We start to outlive everybody who is important to us.

    We have a special section on our photo wall, just for the friends we've lost.
    So far, there are four pictures there.
