I just got word Bill died. Bil was without a doubt our class clown, perhaps the world's best.

Any thoughts?

Sorry to hear of your loss.

Had a couple die from accidents from shortly after graduation, a couple suicides, a couple from long standing congenital medical issues, at least one overdose, and one murder that I know of. First one I knew of that died of a sudden medical issue (heart attack) I responded to. I knew he lived in the city but it occurred in a neighborhood I wouldn't expect him to be.

That was uncomfortable as it was just before a school honor ceremony that I had to attend as many asked questions that I couldn't or wasn't allowed to answer. It was also of something that is becoming a concern as I grow older. The others weren't any problem as they occurred far away from me, I wasn't close to them, wasn't unexpected, or I heard long enough afterward that it was more of an afterthought than real.

I, for one, am not a young man.

I thank The Good Lord for every breath I take.

Thoughts?, if you say he’s dead I’ll take your word for it.
First on I remember losing was about age 15.
May Bill RIP.

I made my 50th birthday this year. This means that I KNOW that every day from here on out, is Down Hill. Many of my friends and acquaintances from HS are gone. Some are in prison. For reasons only known to my Creator, I am still here. I am thankful.

Lost 2 of my close friends from High school.

The first was from cancer and the last by a heart problem while in surgery.

Sucks for sure.

I've had 3 former girlfriends die, all 50's to mid 60's. 2 were from C & 1 was kidney failure (possibly because of extreme weight gain since I dated her in college).


Sin wouldn't be so attractive if the wages were paid immediately.

65 here. Had a good buddy die in May. One year older then me. The day of his funeral I bought a new tractor. Been looking at them for two years. That got me off the fence.

Out of nearly 200 kids I graduated high school with

I know where 2 are

The rest…even with FaceyBook and whatnot, have no idea alive or dead or where, nor care where they be scattered.

A couple years back, some good year blimp walked up to me in Rural King, looking like a 70 year old woman. Asked me if I remembered her from high school. WTF no.

Sorry about your friend Bill.

We are having a reunion on Sept 10. 70, 71, 73 classes. Eager to see these people. Saw some when we had a football team reunion last October. Some I didn’t recognize.

Very sorry about your buddy.

I just attended a service tonight for a fraternity brother. He was a very nice guy with a lot of potential but struggled terribly with alcoholism. He got a divorce many years ago and always struggled to keep a job even though he was a talented coder capable of earning $150k/yr. For whatever reason, he just couldn't do what he needed to do to get and stay sober. He had plenty of people and resources available to him but would just never surrender until this week when he decided to shoot himself. VERY sad for the two kids he left behind and his Mom. His x-wife passed away a couple years ago (also tragic circumstances) so now his two kids are left with no parents and have to live with more grief and emptiness than a person should ever have to put up with.

I know there are a lot of guys who like to partake on this board and that's a-ok but, if you have a problem, I sure hope you can be honest with yourself and get help instead of trying to whip it on your own because that rarely works.....
