    image.jpg I said farewell, for the last time to a good friend today. My friend and his wife lost their lives in a fishing accident. She fell in not wearing her life vest and he jumped in to save her and they both drowned in the Sacramento River. He was a good man and I'm gonna miss him. RIP Van

    Sorry for your loss. I haven't lost any friends but I have lost family and all I can say is that it takes time. You will never forget them. The pain won't always be this much, it fades little by little with time. Hang in there.

    It's hard but you learn to deal with the grief. What a good man to try to save his wife. Honor him.

    I'm also sorry for your loss Mac. I know the feeling of losing a friend suddenly as well. It takes time to get thru. Again I'm very sorry.

    Hey Mac, sad passing but they must have loved each other very much and so are still together.
    Well know the feeling of losing someone close as last August tragically lost to the road a valued staff member and close friend in similar quick manner :(

    Mac.

    I wish there were adequate words, but there truly aren't. Neither of them will truly ever be gone so long as you remember them, cherish those memories, and never let your love for them die. The pain will ease with time.

    You are in my thoughts and prayers, brother. Sending Good Vibes and Happy Thoughts your way!
