I'm sure going to miss him. If anyone wants to, send some prayers to the Bryant family. 30 years old. Leaves behind a wife and 4 kids not to mention his identical twin brother who's a mess right now.

god, this has been a shitty week

Sorry to hear that. If you dont mind me asking, what happened to him? 30 is a really young age.

R.I.P.

Makes you appreciate what you have even more. If there is a silver lining, that would be it. I hope his family gets through this difficult time. If they are without any means of support, life insurance etc. you could consider starting a charity outing for his kids. I am sure his local course would be happy to accomodate. Their education would be the cause, any decent attorney or CPA would help create a trust pro-bono. It may seem a bit soon to consider this, but it will get your mind working on a productive and fruitful mission. When people lose loved ones, the most important for those who suffer is to carry on. The disease of depression is very dangerous, keeping yourself occupied with a summer fundraiser may be a good idea for you and their family. Just a thought. A woman raising 4 kids is very difficult, she is going to need all the help she can get. If I were to go, I would ask that my friends, clients and associates do whatever they could for my kids. I know I would do everything in my power for them and theirs. I am sure you will do what you can, God be with you my brother.

Go out to your buddy's favorite course, take a family member or friend with you to play with and play a round in your buddy's memory.

Take care.

apparently he got in a big fight with his wife, had a few too many and thought he was superman. Plowed into a tractor (no pun intended) head on. Luckily no one else was hurt. I can't even imagine the guilt his wife is going to feel over this.

And I would tell her that it's not her fault. I don't intend this to be insensitive, but he chose to drink and I'm just glad he didn't injure or kill anyone else when he chose to drink and drive.

That said, I'm sorry for your loss, and hers, and for everyone that loved or cared for your friend.

Thanks guys,

Yeah, I know she's going to blame herself. I don't really know his family that well. We were just friends through work and golfed together on occasion. It was his fault, and all I want to do is punch him. But that's kind of pointless now. Yeah, I'm really glad no one else was seriously hurt.

Thanks guys,

I lost a friend a couple years ago, by his own doing. That doesn't make it any easier. It actually makes it harder to take because you feel you might have been able to prevent it somehow. Your wanting to smack him around is an indicator that you would have done something, had you the chance. Now is the time for you to be there for his loved ones, and to have your loved ones be there for you. I'm sorry for your loss.

Oh dear, this really struck me.

I hope you are getting through this. I noticed that three weeks have passed by by now, how are you holding up?
Have you talked to his wife? I hope you do, and by all means that you support her through this if she needs anything.
This thread really made me feel bad, I hope he is in a better state of mind and at a better place now.

My thoughts to you and his belongings,
Erlend
