    “While grief is fresh, every attempt to divert only irritates. You must wait till it be digested, and then amusement will dissipate the remains of it.” ~Samuel Johnson

    “Every one can master a grief but he that has it”
    William Shakespeare

    Those are two of the best things I can share with you all right now. The other cards say nothing useful I fear. The pain will always be there, things will in time distract you. And people who have the least experience in these matters will be the most likely to tell you how you should act or not be acting. Usually when they’ve never lost anyone close at all.

    Seek others who have shared similar griefs. These will be your comforts and confidants.

    Oh, and watch over each other very closely this Christmas, even when they say they are okay, because it’s going to be hell. (as you probably expect)

    Mike would be so ticked about the unfairness of this.

    Stunned and so saddened,

    Ti (Beer) Link.(Mike’s friend)

    Jordan, Your mother once said LOVE IS STRONGER THAN DEATH AND LAUGHTER IS THE ONLY CURE FOR GRIEF. May your friends and family find humor through their sorrow and may you live on always in their love!

    So sorry to hear about Jordan. Ruth, my thoughts and prayers are with all of you at this difficutl time. I have fond memories of Jordan from Riverside. Do you remember how he wanted to give me a wedding cake for my birthday and he was going to put a bride and groom on top and it would be us? I laughed so hard! God Bless You, Sherry Tamerius

    Jordan will be greatly missed. I, for one, will miss his energy and that sweet smile and spirit. It was heart warming to watch him interact with Tessa and the children. Ruth I am just a phone call away.. there is nothing that can be said that will ease the grief but if you just need an ear, please do not hesitate to contact me.

    I will miss you more than you will ever know. You were my best friend and the closest thing to a brother I have ever had. My heart goes out to your beautiful children and Tessa and your mother. They will eternally remain in my heart and prayers. I hope you finally found peace Joran. I love you and will miss you until the day I see you again. Goodbye friend.

    Hey dad so Im just kinda going through looking at this stuff and of course Im crying.. its November so we all know what that means, time of hell and depression. Ive cried a lot already and its only the 7th I wish you were here I have so much I wanna tell you, I came out as a lesbian and I have a girl friend we’ve been together for a little over a month now and she makes me really happy.. I started high school this year its a lot better than middle school other than the work is harder and theres a lot more. Court stuff is hard I might be going into foster care.. which isn’t all that bad I guess.. if you were still here and not crazy on drugs Id probably live with you but then again maybe you and mom would have gotten back together, no one knows or will ever know. Im a little over a month clean from self harm which is good I guess. Its been almost 8 years with out you and let me tell you how much I want you and need you to be here for me Ive only recently learned some stuff about you and of course it made me mad and sometimes I feel like you picked the drugs over me and Nick and Dom and Cali.. Which if you think about it really sucks cause your dad picking basically suicide over his kids is really bad but whatever made you happy makes me happy sometimes I think of killing myself just so I can see you and be with you.I wish there was a way that I could just spend another day with you while you were sober just so I could see you and hear your voice one more time.. Some of the shit I hear makes me think you didn’t love me.. But everyone tells me you loved me more than you loved yourself and that you just wanted the best for me. It really sucks that I don’t remember what your voice sounds like at all, I wanna try to find some videos so I can hear it again but I promise it’ll make me ball my eyes out but it’ll be worth it.. I love you so much dad and I wish I could spend one more day with you..
