Day of Memories

Yesterday as I was reading the paper, I read that a buddy of mine from my highschool years had passed away.

I hadn't seen him for along time but I have often thought about him over the years. He was a handsome guy, very generous and fun to be around. Unfortunately he dabbled in drugs and never could shake them. Just like so many before him and so many to come.

So yesterday was a day of memories. Rest in peace Tony. Posted by Picasa

It is a sadly familiar story. I too have old friends that passed as a result of this same personal struggle. Why is it that some people just become so addicted and others never do.

Did he have any children?
The picture says a thousand words with this post.

So sorry!

I am so sorry for your loss of a friend. Even though you hadn't seen him you still lost a part of your memory and it is really sad. Wish we could be little angels for everyone and help them through hard times but that just isn't possible.

You will see him again someday and maybe till then he will be watching over you from time to time.

At a time like this you can't help wondering 'what might have been?' So many young lives with enormous potential are lost through addiction to drugs and alcohol. Remember your friend fondly and be glad that his troubles are over.

Sorry to read this Sandy. It's harder when you've know them as a young person.
Your photos are interesting as I think cemeteries are full of history.

I too was very saddened by Tony's passing. I was reminiscing with another friend about what a wonderful voice Tony had! It really is such a tragedy.

Hi Kelli, remember him singing Led Zepplin all the time? He did have a great voice.
