I have been hesitant to post this due to the sensitive nature and my loss.
My neighbor, plumbing helper, helper on my house, computer parts sandblaster,
and the best friend I ever had, passed away Feb 20th
He was only 25 and was like a son to me.
In an instant he was gone from a single car crash.....
This has changed my world because he did so much for me and
I could always rely and depend on him, I can only think this is what it is like to loose a child. My son is 26.
I have so many wonderful stories about him, we liked the same music etc. etc.

I am trying my best to learn to crawl again. I have no plumbing helper, so this is going to limit how
much I can do per day with a bad back. Also it will affect the rate of time it will take to rebuild a computer.
Also what I can do on my house that is nearing completion .

Grayson Radford was such a wonderful person and I will miss him for the rest of my life.
He lived life to it's fullest and I admired him for his patience.
I am slowly getting back to rebuilding......

Please understand that this is a terrible loss for me, and it will take some time for me to get
my head back on straight, Thanks Guys, and thank you for your patience.,,,,this really hurts.
I have never had a man break my heart, I loved him like a son.
Thanks Joe

Joe:
I, too, lost one of my sons to an auto accident just over 11 years ago. He was 28. There are times now that it still hurts as it did back then. There isn't a day that comes that he is not thought about even now and probably for the rest of my and my wife's life. So sorry for your loss and prayers sent....Dale

Joe, I was told by a very old lady, many years ago..." When you put your shoes on in the morning, you don't know who will be taking them off at night". This holds true with the loss of your young friend. I am so sorry for your loss. Paul www.severngaspumps.com

Joe,

I'm so sorry for your loss, he really sounded like a wonderful young man.
All losses of loved ones are so very hard to deal with , especially the sudden/unexpected and tragic ones.
Please know that even though you'll never get over the loss of Grayson you will get through it but, it takes a lot of time.
I speak from dealing with a recent and very tragic loss of one of my siblings ... it still hurts terribly.
Keep him close in your heart & mind, just sad that's all you can do now.
Blessings to you as you try and get through this... time does help ease the pain but sadly it can never erase it or bring him back.

So, so sorry to hear this Joe, and so sad for all who have lost loved ones so young. The greatest tribute to such a loss--any loss--is to know how much they were loved...
