well, as im going into the next stage of my life, (being University) i feel a tad upset that my friend Alice who passed away 5 years ago isnt here to experience the things that have happened since she died...not very HUGE things, but just the little occasions you remember sharing with friends that are always a bit sad because you wish she was there...and the whole going to uni thing as well...i often wonder what she would hae studied or what not....but yeh...i miss you Alice
I also miss my Dad more and more recently with things being a tad rocky at home ive found myself wanting to speak to him and hear him laugh, and have him make me laugh, it was aways that little extra support i got listening to how his life was going on, half way around the world, that helped me get by...although Aztec now has the same effect, minus the round the world thing, i still wish i could have my Daddy back!
The one who floats in and out from time to time, grabbing a cookie on her way past!
This is in memory of my dad, who passed away almost 25 yrs. ago when I was only 14, I miss him terribly to this day. Also in memory of my friend, Tressia, who was like another mom to me, she has been gone for almost 6 yrs. now. She took with her a large piece of my heart and I'll never be the same.

found out today my friend joe died. brain tumour, 39 yrs old, has left a wife and 2 small kids. i've been talking to other friends, the funeral is tomorrow, and i'm sure we'll reminisce about joe, but i just needed to write something, somewhere, and although none of you new him, this seems as good a place as any. i'm gonna miss joe, over the past few months he wasn't quite himself, but he was still here, he still came over and played poker. he was still a laugh, and i enjoyed his company always, and thoroughly. he had the kindest soul of any person i met, and i'm not just saying that because he's gone now, a man i wish the rest of the world could have met. and it will be a little darker knowing i won't bump into joe, and share a moment with him anymore. good friend to all who knew him, good father, husband, kind soul. take care joe

This is to my grand-father, Robert Davis Kilby aka Papa. When he died a little before March in the year 2001, school was halfway over, when the guidance counselor told me to get my stuff to go home. At first, I was thinking, yippee; I'm going home! But then I saw my pastor and my mom waiting outside... Mom was crying, and Revered Jeff looked very forlorn and grave. I asked what was wrong, and Mom said that Papa had passed away.
I remember just looking at the two and saying "You're joking, right?" I couldn't believe that my grand-father, whom I adored greatly, had passed away earlier that morning from a heart attack.
We drove down to Key Largo where my grandmother and grandfather lived. I remember how I had my GameBoy in the car, and that I named my Pokemon after each member in our family, my favorite, Blastoise, being named after Papa.
I was about 8 at the time and my little brother 3, so of course we had no idea of what was really going on. When we arrived at their condominuim, many of our relatives were there, and I showed my Aunt Marcy how I named my Pokemon after all of my relatives. All she could do was smile weakly and ask me not to dwell on such things and to go watch television... I went into one of the rooms, and I think it was there that it hit me- Whoa, he's gone.

There are only two people I really miss. The first is my mom. It's been 19 years now. Wow.
The second is my ex-wife Violetta. She is alive, but I miss her terribly. When I stop and thing about the five second periods of time in my life where one small change would have such a profound effect on the rest of my life. It's been a long time since I have written her name. We have been apart for 2 1/2 years now, and it still hurts like hell.
