    Default RIP Dear Friend

    Hey all.
    Just had to vent. Feeling bad, and need a bit of support here.
    Yesterday, a coworker, and long time friend did'nt show up to work. We assumed he was just sick with the cold going around the shop, and was recooperating.....Well, when we came into the office this morning, we were called into a huddle and given the tragic news that our dear friend passed away on Saturday night at 47. We had just seen him on Friday.....he was his usual self, laughing and joking...and complaining about the women in his life, as usual. lol. He wasn't the clean living poster child by any stretch, but far from living on the razors edge. he just loved the simple things in life, and would do anything to help a brother out. In his early days, he lived pretty hard though......but in recent years had cleaned up a great deal....and tried to help people who had lived the same way. I credit him to a great degree for getting me sober.
    The hard part for me is he used to warn me....no actually damn near throttle me when he saw me abusing myself after my wife's passing. He said to me 'If you don't stop, you are going to die!"
    Well....I'm here today, happy, healthy, and my friend is gone in a blink of an eye.
    RIP Tony. We love you buddy! Hope you're riding up in heaven along side Dave Mann!
    She looks so $#@!'n good ,so sexy and so frail....Somethin's got the bite on me, I'm goin' straight to Hell.

    Sad news indeed. Sorry to hear about your loss. Sounds like you owe him a lot with respect to the drinking. Good karma for him. Do they know what happened to him yet?

    Thanks Mike. He was a real great guy. Sounds hoky but seriously, one of the greatest guys on the planet. He'll be missed greatly. One of those guys that it seems everyone knows. Already had some drivers come through asking if we heard the news. Amazing.

    We just heard that their doing toxicology on him. Bit of a surprise really. I'd be surprised if they found anything other than Viagra in his system. lol. He did love the ladies! And they loved him too!

    Yeah....He just had charm like you would'nt beleive. he was kind of a gruff man's man type, but was never without the company of the ladies. Funny, cuz they all knew he wasn't the settling down type, but they all wanted to be with him it seemed. Just a testament to his personality. Treated them like gold, and it was a mutual respect.

    Sounds like the kind of guy you just want to hang around with and have a few beer. And you can always catch the ladies that he discards. My kinda guy.

    AW! I'm so sorry Sleeper! But I'm very thankful that he helped you wake up and to realize how important your life is. It's sad, but ya know, he's MUCH better off than any of us are right now, and um, you're pretty freakin charming yourself there.
