    Losing a pet is a hard thing to do (especially a dog).

    We had a puppy fall out of the car window a few months back......he is ok now but it was absolutely horrible.

He was a hero to many and a friend to all. I don't go around telling people an of this shit, but I've loved this community and I know a few of you care. Rest in peace to all those whom we have lost.
    Roo brother.......that is a beautiful tribute to what was certainly an amazing man. Thank you for sharing it here. You and your family are in our thoughts and prayers

    I hereby call today.......


    "Call em if you got em day"






    If your parents are still alive, today is a good day to give em a call to see how they are doing. They will appreciate it more than you know. Spend as much time with them as you possibly can. Its one of the most important things that you can do. You will be glad you did.....when they are gone.









    ......innit

    Frosty - Well like the ass I am, I just dropped into this thread and read of your loss...........................Words are .....well........look stay strong, let him live on in your heart, cry out the loss as you can. Never an easy thing, but one of life's crossings we all must endure...........

    As usual, I have been making stupid snide character references about you in various threads here and there, oblivious to your loss and condition. And of course now I feel like a complete shit.... That's ok, I deserve it.

    But as you know, I hope, it is my love of you that somehow translates into unrelenting trash talk, I will not stop, it is the least I can do! I have felt your absence here and was wondering.......... But a recent reply to something somewhere of.... and I quote.... "lool", was enough to make my heart just a bit lighter. We love you very much, (in a very manly way), and hope your pain is soon replaced with thoughts of happy times spent with your father...... This will take time, always does, but he is with you now and always.... Take care.

    I will put the hairy butt at half mast until further notice...........

    I saw behind me those who had gone and before me those who are to come. I looked back and saw my father and his father and all our fathers and in front, to see my son, and the sons upon sons beyond. And their eyes were my eyes. As I felt, so had they felt, and were to feel as then, so now as tomorrow and forever.... I was of them, they were of me, and in me, and I in all of them.

    It was a beautiful day here in Carrickfergus, we carried my father right to the grave where he now rests with his father.
    There is now some closure.
    Thank you once again for your support, this is one of the hardest things Ive done and well done for stickying this thread. Hopefully it will help others in future.

    Frosted I am so, so sorry to hear this brother. Devastated, actually, and I'm not sure why. Probably because my own father developed heart problems recently after living a very healthy lifestyle and I am scared shitless. I'm so sorry. You are in my thoughts today.
