    Boxcar's 1928

    We lost our 17 yr old son Tyler going on 3 yrs this December 28. We've made it this far because we all accepted that the greatest tribute one can make to a departed loveone is to embrace life more and love more, they are with us always.

    sorry for your loss boss, don't consider it selfish like the others say.
    sometimes it just feels like a breath of fresh air to say whats on your mind, there's something to be said about confidence in strangers. sometimes that's just what we all need.
    remember the good times and take it easy, one day at a time.
    prayers and thoughts go out to you friend.

    The two of you were models for those of us who have tried several times to have a marraige like yours. I'm sure she sits on a pedastal in your mind. Sorry for your great lose.
  7. Ryan, bear with me.
    My avitar will be up for sale. It's O/T, so I won't get into it here, but look for it at the Pate swap meet next year. Someone is going to get the deal from hell, for some reason, I just don't want to go on with it. Some one else needs to love it now.
    Thanks for all the kindness.
  8. Mike, you were a lucky man to have spent 46 years with the love of your life. I can only imagine the heart ache you are experiencing. Mike, don't give in to the pain, keep going and know that's what she would want as she watches from above.

    sorry for your loss
  17. Oh my God man, I'm so sorry. I feel your grief through your post and it brings tears to my eyes. I can't imagine all that you're feeling right now.

    We're here for you, my brother. Hang in there. This loss won't be easy and I'm sure it's hard to imagine that the sun will ever shine again, but it will. You have a healing process to go through and it begins when you are ready for it. You have to live for yourself and now for Cris too.

    I would invite you to not make any big decisions right now, like getting rid of the car in your avatar. I say that with the utmost respect for you and your loss.

    Tell us more about Cris. Share some memories with us. It would be nice to hear more.

    Prayers and blessings to you and yours.

    Take care, my friend.

    So sorry to hear about your loss
    I completely understand how a lady like that can be your whole world
    Peace be with you brother, and peace be with your Wife too.
  29. Not selfish at all. I lost my first wife to cancer back in '87 when she was just 29. I still think of her all the time and talking about it is how I deal with it. Sorry to hear about your loss, and know that you're in our thoughts and prayers.

    Mike I would agree with Saxman on holding off making big decisions. Unfortunately, I do know where your at and what your feeling.

    The day Earnhardt hit the wall, we were given the news that my late wife had inoperable brain cancer. Two and a half years later, she was gone.

    I thought that things were never to be the same, and that happiness was gone from my life. The cars, guitar collection and other things that we enjoyed together only brought tears and pain, so they were sold.

    Were I to do it over, I would have held on to them. While they initially brought pain, the few things I kept eventually brought smiles at the memories they invoked.

    I am truly sorry for your loss.
