A friends loss

5 posts in this topic

It has been only 4 months with out her and he is still lost. A buddy of mine lost his Step- dauther 4 months ago today and is still very lost. She was only 12 when she lost the fight with cancer, he is still wishing it was him. I know a minute doesnot pass that he doesnot think of her. He text me a few nights ago say that he was just think of all the things they wanted to do together and now they can't. I pray for him and his family to heal but I know that they must do it in their on time. So as you read this today just give that loved one an extra hug and say I love you because we never know when the time has come that they may be gone. Thank you Matt

That is a sad story Matt. I could never imagine what your friend is going through. 4 months is not enough time to heal over the loss of your child. Continually let him know you are there for him and give him a shoulder lean on. That's all you can really do. My heart really goes out to him, I can't imagine anything worse than that.

My heart goes out to your friend. It must be almost unbearable. A parent should not have to bury a child (step or not).

I day does not pass without me thanking the lord for my two little ones. I try to appreciate every moment with them and try to take every opportunity to do things with them. They will grow old soon enough and be gone.

My thoughts and prayer's are with your friend.

I know everyone is different, but I lost my 5 month old son last year to SIDS. I know just how much pain he is feeling, especially while thinking about all of the things they should have done together in life. One thing that helped me was whenever I was missing him and feeling really depressed, I would force myself to think about a particular memory that would make me smile every time. It's hard to feel cheated about their loss when you're remembering how great those little moments were.

My heart goes out to your friend and his family.

I can't imagine what it would be like to lose a child. We expect to someday have to bury our parents, and that is tough enough, but not our children.

    •   With the 40 acres? Both hopefully. We still grouse hunt and deer hunt up there occasionally. There is a small cabin there but there is not a well or electricity. It is very primitive, but that's kind of what I like about it.
    • There are some pretty gnarly long roads and trails up in that area. I use to do some of them alone on 4 wheeler but not anymore. It's always nice to have a buddy with a wince along!  What are you guys thinking on doing with it hunting-camping?
    • Looks interesting. They have those nets that you put down a hole that do the same thing, but I can see where some people would prefer this more solid version.
    •   The land in question is a 40 acre parcel up near Remer. My FIL's uncle has owned it since my FIL was a small child and he has been spending time up there ever since. It's a cool parcel of land with lake frontage but it is hard to get to. The last mile or so is basically an ATV trail. When it is dry enough we can get in with trucks but the last time I was up there there were a lot of trees across the trail that would need to be cleared.    I would love to be able to own that land but ultimately it has to be an immediate family member. My FIL says he was supposed to inherit it because his dad used to be half owner as well. It is looking less and less likely that will happen because the current owner's wife is in a nursing home and the money has run out. We think there may be a lien on the property already but don't know for sure.    My FIL needs to talk to his uncle about the situation before it's too late but I think he is holding out hoping to inherit it. I hope that happens but I'm pretty sure it won't.
    • This is a good way to keep them crisp
    •   I was just wondering where it was since you said you needed a 4 wheeler to get into it. I know the woods up in that area pretty well after years of hunting, snowmobiling and Dual Sport riding all over. Not thinking of buying but just wondering where it was?
    • I'm not fighting with anyone.   Many ways to make antennas, and for receivers in cars wavelengths aren't all that important.   Class up your vehicle with a wire nut or a fox tail or whatever you like.  
    •   Still a possibility but due to family dynamics it would have to be a joint venture with my FIL. He is the one that would have to technically make the purchase and we would go halves with him but he isn't doing anything about it right now.    It may still be a possibility but I'm not holding my breath.
    • sounds like draw length is too long
    • Wax all the string except where the serving is as the wax can get under it and cause it to slip   You should be able to tell the serving because the string will be thicker. Serving is just a thin string wrapped around you bow string. Will be around your peep sight around your d loop   If all else fails just go to your local archery shop and ask them for some pointer about waxing and other general bow maintenance that you should be doing hope some of this info helps though good luck!
