    Oh dear, oh dear.


    That's just terrible, scary and my heart hurts for you and what you went through today.  Please take care of yourself.


    mta:   A couple years ago in a 10K, a runner went down in front of me. A couple of us stopped to help, and I have never felt so helpless in my life. I had a red Cross certification, but it haunted me for months...did I do "enough". I thought about this again tonight at dinner.  I feel for you with a depth that I can not express in typed words.  If I could meet you in person, I'd hug you.

    I've done my best to live the right way. I get up every morning and go to work each day. (for now)

      I really thought that this would about a dog passing away, but this is so much worse. Heartfelt condolences to you.

        that is just absolutely terrible, cannot even begin to imagine how that was for you.  already prayed for you & his family.   as milktruck just mentioned be sure to take care of yourself to get through this.

          So sorry! 


          It's very hard to think of yourself at this time. But,  you might find it helpful to talk to someone.    Don't underestimate how this may affect you.

                That just terrible.  So sorry. My condolences to everyone.

                So bittersweet,
                This tragedy
                Won't ask for absolution;
                This melody,
                Inside of me,
                Still searches for solution.
                A twist of faith,
                A change of heart
                Cures my infatuation.
                A broken heart, 
                Provides the spark
                For my determination.

                  I am sorry for your loss.  It's a terribly shocking story, I can't imagine how awful that must have been for you.  My thoughts and condolences to you and to your friend's family.


                    this is just a terrible thing to hear; my thoughts are with his family, but also, and especially, with you. Please don't let it stop you running, your buddy would never forgive you...
