    Dear rncountry,
    Sorry about your loss.. It is very hard to lose a friend, but know that as long as you continue to speak of him, he is never really gone. Hold on to your memories. I will keep you and his family in my prayers.

    Dear RNCOUNTRY,

    I am so sad for your loss, I too lost a wonderful friend who was 28 and had an MI, left behind 3 beautiful children, the sad part was he was in ED with his young son who had a soccer injury, the father arrested in ED and although he had ACLS immediately he still could not be saved, he was too was a nurse. I think the hardest part about these situations is everyday we save complete strangers yet we are powerless to save the ones we love. Not a day goes by in my life when I thank God for each day that he gives me, and as all nurses could testify we all know or see pts that have their lives cut short, one day I intend to ask God his reasoning but for now I am content with that each sunset we see in another day of God's grace. At moments like these I am glad that I am a nurse as it does not matter where you are in the world or who you are complete strangers will offer their heartfelt sympathy. I used to think that some nurses still eat their young but on many occassions they pick them up when they have fallen out of the nest. To all those that have replied to this dear colleague thank you, it renews my faith in my profession. To all my colleagues around the world that are facing personal or professional crisis know that as long as you are a nurse you are never alone, and no matter what sitaution you are in chances there is somebody else that has been there or is going there, times like this it shows that nursing is indeed a caring profession and we do actually start with caring for each other. Thank you all, and country RN you will be in my thoughts and my prayers along with this dear family.

    I am so sorry to hear of your loss. Your keeping him in your thoughts is a way to keep his presence close-by.

    When we walk to the edge of all the light we have and take the step into the darkness of the unknown, we must believe that one of two things must happen: There will be something solid for us to stand on, or we will be taught to fly.

    I'M FREE

    Don't grieve for me, for now I'm free

    I'm following the path God laid for me.

    I took His hand when I heard him call;

    I turned my back and left it all.

    I could not stay another day,

    To laugh, to love, to work or play.

    Tasks left undone must stay that way;

    I found that place at the close of day.

    If my parting has left a void,

    Then fill it with remembered joy.

    A friendship shared a laugh, a kiss;

    Ah yes, these things, I too will miss.

    Be not burdened with times of sorrow

    I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow.

    My life's been full, I savored much;

    Good friends, good times, a loved ones touch.

    Perhaps my time seems all to brief;

    Don't lengthen it now with undue grief.

    Lift up your heart and share with me,

    God wanted me now, He set me free.

    My thoughts are with you.

    I am sorry to hear of your loss too rncountry. The tragedy of losing a loved one so young makes the grief that much harder. What a terribly sad loss for all who loved him. I hope that as the years go by you are able to find some comfort and peace by remembering the very brightest things about him... his smile, the sound of his voice, his integrity and strength. Peace to you and his family. -Scarpetta
