    Default A Sad Day for The Violater..........

    Tomorrow I will go to the funeral of one of my best friends in the whole world. He passed away early Sun. morn. His name is/was John Wahl, he was 68 years old. I met him in about 1977 and we hit it off immediately. He was 12 years older than me but what a partier !!! He was like a surrogate father to me and taught me a lot about life. He was a builder and always told me when I got ready to build a house he would 'take care of me'. 8 years ago I took him up on the promise and he showed up no problem and saved me about 100,000. My life was fully enriched as well as my family by this man and I will miss him everyday for the rest of my life...................... I hope ALL of you will be lucky enough to have a friend as good as my friend John......................Peace !

    Really sorry to hear about your close friend. I have learned many lessons from my older friends also. It is especially hard to lose a friend who you like to work with on different projects. We all have friends we socialize with but most of my really close friends are the ones I work with on a regular basis (not through regular employment).
    Nothing like a good project to cement a friendship...

That's like the 20th time he's gone by today?"
