My Friend Passed Away Today

I thank you all for your support over the last week. My friend did pass away this morning. He was actually only 46 years old. His son was a match and was set to give him a piece of his liver but my friend was too overweight to survive the transplant. He had tried to lose some of the weight over the past few months but we all know how difficult it can be when you are sick and in pain. His son that was set to donate a piece of his liver is only 19 years old and lost his 19 year old fiance in a terrible car accident 1 month ago today. This whole thing has been such a tragedy. Thanks again to all of you that offered your support during this devastating time.


  • I'm sorry to hear about the passing of your friend, but unlike those left behind, he's no longer in pain and that's something to be grateful for.

    My thoughts and prayers are with you and his family. Maybe my dad is up there showing him the "ropes".

  • Sorry to hear your friend passed away,you take care...

  • It is horrible that your friend lost his battle but he is now with God and out of pain. It doesen't matter who you lose, how old they are, or if you've known them 10 minutes or 100 years, when you lose a loved one it is a pain and hurt only truly understood by others who have lost loved ones. Many of us have been there, understand, and send prayers of comfort and condolence. God Bless and try to remember the good memories and hold on to them.
  • Blessings to You and your friend's family at this difficult time. Charry

  • Wow. What a heart wrenching story. I am so very sorry that both you and all the affected parties had to endure all of this. Now, as you know is the best time for you to lean on friends and family. Please dont take these feeling on alone. You did a great job comming here to vent. That is a great step! Please keep it up. I know with me when things get bad I tend to isolate myself which in the long run makes it worse. I hope that you do indeed have friends and family to lean on, that this time passes quickly for you and that God provides you and all the affected comfort and hope. Take care.
