The deep dark woods...

Earth, like life, seems darkest before the dawn. But the sun shall rise and bring forth a new day. My friend that I have known almost all of my life is to be buried today. But many memories of him will live on among all those that he has touched in his too short life. And those are many.

Save me a seat at the bar brother. When my time here is through we'll do those tequila shots like we used to.



Manowar: Carry On


The north star always guides me
When winter skies are gray
And I wait for sun when all are one
I shall not betray
Calling at me
I'm waiting when all are led astray

Carry on my sons forever
Carry on when I am gone
Carry on when the day is long
Forever carry on
For as long as we're together
Then forever carry on

Darkness all around us
We don't close our eyes
No one's gonna' ground us
We were born to fly
Comin' at us; no stopping
Born to amplify

Carry on my sons forever
Carry on when I am gone
Carry on when the day is long
Forever carry on
For as long as we're together
Then forever carry on

Yea, be my brother
Fight to stay alive
All the world can't change us
With all their burned-out jive
Come get us now we're waiting
We won't run and hide

Carry on my sons forever
Carry on when I am gone
Carry on when the day is long
Forever carry on
For as long as we're together
Then forever carry on

Now we're all together
Let's sing a fighting song
One hundred thousand riders
We can't all be wrong
Comin' at us; no stopping
Always carry on

Carry on my sons forever
Carry on when I am gone
Carry on when the day is long
Forever carry on
For as long as we're together
Then forever carry on

I'm so sorry you lost your buddy :-(
You're doing a wonderful tribute to him. Till you see him again...

We're sad for you that you lost your dear friend. The day is appropriately dreary and the sky sheds it's tears.

Hey Joseph. I've been sending you good thoughts...I hope you're doing okay. Remember that your friend will always live on in your memory. I know it's not the same as having him in person, but let it be some consolation.
