    Be kind to your family and friends

    I hadn't heard from a friend of mine in several days and another buddy of mine hears from him every day and hadn't heard from him since Friday. I decided to go over and check on him and his wife and son today only to walk in on a double homicide and suicide of him his wife and son. We have been friends for 42 years and now they are no more. The reason I tell this is to remind everyone that you never know when or if you will ever see anyone again so try and keep this in mind when you leave your friends or family because it may be the last time. I was lucky and was just over to their house a matter of days ago and had a good visit, Jeff

    Terrible news. I wonder what happened, but I guess it doesn't make too much difference now.

    Re: Be kind to your family and friends

    Without going in to the details it was a combination of a 47 year old son with an attitude, drinking to much and having a gun in the house. The dad is the friend of mine that I took pictures of yachts for sale for that I have posted in the past. I met him when in 1968 and we have been friends ever since. The entire time I have known him he was confined to a wheel chair due to polio, Jeff

    Bad combination for sure - alcohol, loaded gun, bad attitude.

    Re: Be kind to your family and friends

    I appreciate the replies. I wish some how that we could delete images in our minds like we can delete them on our computers. I don't think the images I have in my mind will not need a backup and will still last forever. Hope none of you ever have this experience and always have happy ones, Jeff.

    That's a terrible story. And your right about that, that you can never tell if you can see again the person you have left. And never ever take anyone for granted.

    Re: Be kind to your family and friends

    Jeff,

    I am so sorry about your friends. What a terrible tragedy for this family, and for you. I will pray for you this weekend in a most special way. God bless you, Jeff. I am sorry.

    Just a thought - you might consider posting this in Viewfinder. I say that because it is our "livingroom" so to speak where we can share personally. And, I don't always check the "off-topic" forum if I don't have much time, but I almost ALWAYS check VF because I want to be sure everyone is okay. I think most of us check VF more frequently because we come to know more about each other personally there. This way you will know that most of our PR community will eventually see your post. And they would want to know.

    Liz
