One of the Saddest Things in Life

One of the saddest things in life is finding out how many lives someone touches after they pass. You don’t know yourself, but when you pass you see all these people come forward to say they miss you, and how you touched their lives.

Dave was a bouncer at Teehans, almost same time I was a bouncer at Blue Iguana, when I did visit Teehans, Dave always had a handshake, and a smile waiting for me. Over the years we became friends, sure I wasn’t a close friend, but when I saw him we would talk, and share some time for awhile.

My best friends mother passed, and I went to the funeral. There was Dave sitting on the couch of the funeral home. I was like what you doing here, he knew one of the nieces to my best friends mom. I was shocked another moment when I realized the earth really wasn’t that big after all.

I knew Dave wasn’t feeling well, he had problems with his liver. I didn’t know the severity of it, hell I just seen the guy at Teehans a few weeks ago. He passed of liver failure, and to see the outpouring from his friends, and family is a testement of what a nice guy he was.

I hope he can see Facebook Statuses in heaven, cause there were some real touching ones. Take Care Dave, I’ll miss ya.

Strange Dream

I usually don’t remember my dreams, but I had a wierd one last night and the strange thing is I remembered it.

Ok this is what I remember…I was sitting in a kitchen. It was the kitchen of the house I grew up in. I hear a doorbell. I answer the door, at first I don’t see anyone there, then I look off to the side a bit. There is my old friend Tony. Tony is one of my oldest friends, but alas he past away a long time ago. He looks the same as he always did, wierd thing is in the dream I kind of knew he was dead, but it didn’t phase me.

So I invite him in, we start talking about our fathers. I mention how I worry about my father now that’s he’s growing older. Tony is worried to, and says he looks in on his father from time to time. We sit in the kitchen, and I ask Tony why he was here. He goes, ” I got something for you” . He hand me two little signs saying something I couldn’t make out what they said. I looked at him, and said, “I don’t know what these mean”  He goes you will when the time comes”

Then that’s the end of the dream, but it’s killing me to find out what the signs said. Were they some warning of doom from the other side, or did I eat something that didn’t agrree with me.  I guess I’ll never know.
