    No better way to put this but I just recieved word that my brother died. He jumped off a bridge in Tenn.. My family is just waiting for clearance from the ME so we can go down and make arrangements.

    I'm saying this because at the moment I'm a little shocked and, well, I needed to vent some on the only place that feels like home. My family is scattered to the four winds (we're not really close in the traditional sense) so besides my pre-wife I don't have many connections around here to talk to except you guys. I'm at a loss.

    Wow, I am sorry, Njaco. There's really no magic words I can say, just that I can understand the shock you're going through. Take care of yourself and hang in there...

    That's a hell of a bomb you just had dropped on you Chris
    I'm not going to pretend I understand what you're going through but I imagine you're feeling pretty numb
    You're right about one thing though, you've got us. Anything building up in a bad way just come in and bounce it off us

    My sincere condolences fella
