The ornament of a house is the friends who frequent it. - RW Emerson

Mr Weenie and I and all our friends are roughly the same age.

Some we have know since kindergarden,
and some just more recent.

We've been to their Weddings,
and they went to ours.
We've been in their Weddings,
and they have been in ours.

We are god-parents to some of their kids,
We have been to their kids christenings,
We have been to their kids birthday parties.

But at 40 years old we did not think that we would be going to one of their funerals.

We received a notice this afternoon that a life long friend of Mr Weenie's passed away in his sleep last night.

They went to kindergarden together,
Mr Weenie was his best man at his first wedding,
he was in our wedding.

He was 40 years old and now he is gone.

At this time we do not know the details.

He left 2 kids behind.

He was 40,


We will miss you greatly Brian ...

Sorry to hear that Qdub. Give Mr. Weenie my best. I haven't lost any good "kid friends" yet, but I can only imagine it can screw with your melon.

I'm so sorry to hear about the loss of your friend. Please pass on condolences to your husband and your friends family.

I hate to hear of anyone losing a loved one, be it family or friend...but especially one so young. Please give our sympathy and best wishes to not only you and Mr Weenie, but for Brian's friends and loved ones left behind. I hope that time will return good memories and tears of laughter versus sorrow over his passing soon.

Sorry to hear about this. I know how bad this one hurts. I lost a lifelong friend like that a couple years ago.
