I am beside myself....:(
For about two months I have been trying to get a hold of a friend of mine that I have known now for 20 years...
(I am sorry if this is in the wrong place)
When I lived up in NC for almost 15 years, He and I were like brother and sister and we saw eachother every day almost... we were there for eachother through relationships and life...
He is a huge reason I was strong enough to go be a police officer and I was one of the reasons he went to be a dr...(he kept his leo status part time)... anyway....
I have known he was getting married shortly and wanted to offer him my beach home here in florida for his honeymoon...
I also wanted him to be involved in some plans I have going on in my life..
The last I heard from him was Dec. 3 he called me drunker than shit and left me his usual lengthy message.... I was asleep and have tried to get him back since....
His girlfriend finally called me.... and told me he died....
I am beyond myself lately and miss him so much.... I never thought this would happen to him of all people and he was so young.
He passed away during his sleep and didnt die in the line of duty or anything... Let me tell you this guy loved being a cop... He wanted his ashes put into bullets... that kind of cop....
I feel so lost and for any who may know me... I dont have any family but my mom....
Troy was my best friend and my brother... LEO and not....
Just in case you all wondered maybe why I havent posted much...
Ive just been really sad...
busy with work yes... but that is to keep myself busy...
but really sad because being here reminds me of him and his love for this job.
I need to shut up now and stop rambling....
I hope you all can say a prayer for him or whatever you do....
I miss him
We dallied under
Vine maples and sapling alders
Searched for lady slippers
Found blackberry riots and
An old skid road
Brought ghost ferns and
Hollows filled with
While waves wrapped
Intricate lacings of weeds
'Round mule spinners
His cyanotic eyes
Were hard enough to make
The sun turn tail and
Tender enough to attract me
To his world of illusion

I'm very sorry to hear of the loss of your dear, close friend Troy. I well definitely keep you, his girlfriend, and his family in my prayers and thoughts. May your heart be at peace as he is and may God embrace his soul. As Term, said it is a very tragic loss if you need to talk, I or anyone here is just a pm away.
A smile cost nothing, but gives so much.
It enriches those who receive it,without making poorer those who give.It takes but a moment, but the memoryof it sometimes lasts forever.
None is so rich or mighty that hecan get along without it,and none is so poor but thathe can be made rich by it.
A smile creates happiness in the home,fosters goodwill in business,and is the countersign of friendship.
It brings rest to the weary,cheer to the discouraged, sunshine to the sad,and it is nature's best antidote for trouble.
Yet it cannot be bought, begged, borrowed,or stolen, for it is something that is of novalue to anyone until it is given away.
Some people are too tired to give you a smile.Give them one of yours, as none needs a smileso much as he who has no more to give.

Goz, I'm truly sorry to hear of your loss. It sounds like you were blessed to have known each other. Now, more than ever, try to focus on the blessings you had together rather than what you lost. I know I've done my best to make that a mantra for myself.
I'll be keeping you in my prayers.The true measure of your character is what you choose to do when you think no one is looking.

Police Officers put themselves at risk for strangers every day. Some do not make it home to their families. Next time you think of saying something negative about the police, remember...YOU are one of the strangers.

Sorry to hear it, Goz.
We're all thinking of you and yours."If anything worthwhile comes of this tragedy, it should be the realization by every citizen that often the only thing that stands between them and losing everything they hold dear... is the man wearing a badge." -- Ronald Reagan, in the wake of the deaths of 4 CHP troopers in the Newhall Incident, 1970
