A Near Year's Greeting (and Request)

Postby Kilroy » Sat Dec 31, 2011 3:50 am

First off, I'd like to be the first to wish you all a safe and happy New Year's Eve of Celebratory Frivolity, and I very much hope that 2012 treats you and your families with kindness and prosperity.

Second, while I know that my absence from here for so long doesn't exactly put me in a position to ask favors of folks, I have two.

1.) My youngest brother passed away one year ago today, so suffice it to say that New Year's Eve isn't exactly happy happy fun time for my family anymore. If you could, and are the type inclined to do so, please say a prayer for my family on this very difficult day, especially for my mother and brother (Carolyn and Charles), who still live in the house Phil died in, although we are DESPERATELY trying to rectify that...I can't imagine being my bro and walking past the doorway where he found Phil that awful morning every day, and it's literally tearing him apart bit bit by bit.

2.) Be good to one another. Your family, your friends, the person in front of you at the Piggly-Wiggly, whatever. We don't know how much time we'll have here, and we all (myself most definitely included) waste way too much of it angry over meaningless crap or wrapped up in selfish minutiae that means even less.

Happy New Year, and to Met, Knapp, ORS, m16a, and all the other GT kooks I haven't talked to in forever all my best to you and yours. ;-D

I miss you Phil. Every minute of every day. And I regret just as often that I didn't tell you what you meant to me nearly as much as I should have.

Please don't make the same mistake y'all. It's soul-wrenching to deal with. :,-(

This request should be applied to every day, not just New Year's ;-D

Be happy and safe, everyone.

I'll keep you and your family in my thoughts - can't even imagine. The best of New Year's to you all, a day or two late.

Good to hear from you buddy. I know I'm late to post, I've been away from the Cafe recently, but my thoughts are with you and yours Kilroy. In November I lost a very close friend, like a brother to me. I wont even begin to tell you, "I know how you feel" because I don't. But I can relate to your sentiment that we should try to be good to each other everyday. You never know what tomorrow may hold.

Love to you and yours bro. - Met

Happy belated New Year's to you all. Good to hear from you, Kilroy. I'm sorry about your brother. It is never easy to lose a family member, especially before their time.

Met, congrats on your new life venture. I know you'll do just fine.

Everyone else - hope your years are full of peace and happiness.
