Year One

Rate this Entry
Today marks one year since my friend Brent died.

His mom found him within the 5 o'clock hour. He'd been crushed under his truck when it rolled back on him.

The passing of a year hasn't done very much in changing the horror of it all. When it crosses my mind all I can think of is how little he deserved to suffer as he did.

Because he suffered until his last breath.

A lot of my friends and family are posting to his facebook memorial page and several of them will be going to a memorial later tonight.

I don't want to do either of those things because my feelings on the matter tend to get mixed up. I don't want to say anything that'd hurt anyone else.

So I decided to share it with you. I guess because this can't really hurt any of you in any lasting way. I guess also because I need to be able to say something about it to somebody.

He was the kindest person I knew. And the most giving. I don't think I'll ever meet anyone as good natured or as willing to do whatever you wanted him to do.

I still miss him.
