  1. I now cry...

    On the afternoon of June 5th 2002,,in Inver Grove Heights,Minnesota,,another good child is gone. While taking the challenge of swimming from shore to an island,,,A top of his game 15yr old boy drowned. This boy was good,drug free,alcohol free,lettered in weghtlifting,pride of his school as a freshman,looked at for baseball scholarships,and made good choices about friends and pier pressure issues. He was loved ,and cared for by all that had the opportuninty to know him,. His death is truly a loss to the entire community,his family..,and friends...I, his eldest Uncle,,have been very proud of him,,and will honor him always....

    To all the teens out there,,,from NdicaBud. If it seems that a friend may be in trouble in the water,,jump in,,even if that person may be thought to joking around,,it may be real,,,don't take the chance,,,life ,,as much as it may suck sometimes,,,is precious....

    Alex T,,,your uncle loves,and will miss you.,,,,RIP


  2. My deepest sympathies, to you and you're family...i am sorry for you're loss, such a waste at just a tender age of 15....may he rest in peace....my prayers are with you and you're family
  3. I'm sorry for your family's loss.
  4. You, your nephew and family are in my thaughts Ndica. Death is sad no matter what, a young death is particularly sad. Good friends of my family (almost family themselves) have suffered a young death recently. I wish you peace.

  5. These things always make me see things in perspective, if I complain about small things around the day, seems so insignificant by loses like these. Especialy with young people, it is genuinly sad, you can feel the pain of the family and loved ones. I wish you myuch strenght in these trying times my friend.

  6. I'm so sorry for your loss, Ndica.
  7. Deepest sympathies. I cant imagine what its like to lose such a young family member. You're in my prayers.
  8. Our Prayers are with you and yours.
  9. I can't find the words, I guess words aren't realy what ysa need right now.

    My prayers are with you and yours friend.
  10. I'm so sorry to hear that Indica.

    Don't forget in your grief to celebrate his life too.

    Some of us just don't get as much time in this existence as others.

    Who knows why?

    Not me.

    I wish I could remember a poem a famous poet wrote about the youths that was killed in WWI.

    Something about forever young.....

    Never having to grow old.

    I can't remember it damnit!

    But you take good care buddy.

    I'll be thinking of ya.
  11. such a sad loss, i hope you willl someday find the peace to honor him with a smile.
  12. My deepest sympathies to you and your family during this most difficult time.
  13. Ndicabud :( I am so sorry to hear about the loss of your nephew. So young and such a good kid! I hope you find comfort in your fellow family members, both there where you are and here at the city. We're here to support you as best we can over the internet.
    Warm hugs and best of wishes. My deepest sympathies, as well, it is always a great sadness when someone so young is taken from this world in a most unexpected way. :(
  14. ((((((((((((Ndica))))))))))))))
    So sorry for your loss........I hope peace and comfort finds it's way to you and yours.
    We recently suffered a loss only not in the family. The younger brother and mother of one of my boys' friends was killed in a car wreck about a week ago. I was sick over it for days........
    Love to you and yours............
  15. I am sorry to hear about this one man. He is in a better place now though. Just remember that.
  16. I am so sorry for your loss Ndica...it's very difficult to lose someone you love...especially someone so young.
    My prayers are with you and your family now (((((((((Ndica))))))))))))))))).

  17. Many thanks to all of you,,,you are a sweet smell ,in a foul odored world....

    We got the call on the 5th in the afternoon,,,then we left immediately for the cities.....in disbelief..

    I have been amazed at the support from his generation,,,these kids went out of their way to help this family,,,a $9000 burial cost,,has been cut in half,,through donations that these kids sought. at shopping centers,stores,video stores,record shops,etc. Honorability has been regained in many of the youth my nephew hung out with,,,much respect to all young people who reclaim honor among themselves,,and display it freely....please never change.............

    Friends,,this death has hurt me deeply,though I understand the reality,,,my selfish feelings of loss still clouds my thoughts,,..he was to damn young to go,,and a damn good boy......it sucks....This was my wife's twin sisters son,and my brothers stepson,,,so you see,,very close to home.....

    stay safe friends.....peace to all

  18. Times can be hard my friend but you must lift your head up and get on with your life how ever hard it may seam.

    All the best NdicaBud
