View Full Version : Live life to it's fullest !!

Hey all, I'm just back from a funeral which was my through-the-wall neighbours as sadly he was killed in a car crash last thursday morning. It was so unexpected and unbeliveable that to be honest no-one believed it. but unfortunately it did happen. He was a fairly young man, lived life to it's fullest and was a great father and friend. He will be sorely missed and I will miss slagging him about the football or teaching him to use his computer.
He leaves behind a wife, son and daughter and to make it worse the daughter is having his first real grandkid and was getting engaged next week as a surprise. His son's partner is also pregnant and they all know he would've made a great grandpa.
It was amazing to see how many people this one man actually touched and who had feelings for him. He was good hearted and was always a good laugh especially in the summer round the bbq with the beers.
So I'd just like to say make sure you live everyday to it's fullest and don't take any days for granted as you never know when tomorrow might not come.
Thanks for listening.

My thoughts go out to his friends and family. It is a sad thing for anyone to die, but to die leaving behind so much is a word which hasnt been created yet. Its worse than tragic, its worse than terrible.
I have lived my life so far seeing people die, and loved ones pass away. Its sore...Its extremely sore. But like some people say, funerals should be a celebration of the persons life. Just think about the good days and it might ease the pain a little.
Im frightened to death of, well...Death. I dont know what i woulc ever do if one of my parents died, i really dont. And i dont look forward to my own death. If i could live forever, i would.
As for me...Ive been living life like your typical teenager. I have plans for the future and so far its going to plan. Get one hell of an education (current stage), move away from the UK with my immediate family (possibly minus the brother, of course), settle down and have fun. Here's hoping.

Death is so hard. I have trouble dealing with it. I understand that people need to move on, but it just hurts so bad. I think if I have one fear, it's losing loved ones. Just like kristoficus says, I too am scared to lose my parents.
I lost my father-in-law 2 years ago and it's hard. I think about him everyday on some level. What hurts the most, is seeing my wife, who's only 25, suddenly burst into tears because she misses him.
I lost 3 friends too. Both younger than me. One died in a car accident after falling asleep at the wheel, because he was up all night trying to talk his college roommate out of killing himself. The second died after an addiction to heroin and the 3rd died in a ATV accident while drinking.
My thoughts and prayers go out to the family. They'll do ok. they will be strong. Doesn't it seem funny...............when one life ends, 2 are beginning.

Sorry to hear that Andy, all deaths are tragic but this kind are particularly so. My thoughts and condolences to all of his family and friends.

Everybody dies. Not everybody really lives.
Went to 5 funerals last year. After a while they stop being really sore and start being more meloncholy. They really are a dedication to a person, not a time for grieving. A time for giving thanks.
I hope your neighbours are well. They have my thoughts.

My thought go out to his family and friends.
You are right, we should live life to it's fullest.
At least they'll have fond memories!
