Default For All F-Body Enthusiasts

Hey everyone, my name is chris and I just wanted to say thanks to all who visit this site and to the owner of this site. On Monday a good friend of mine past on and for the past few days I really did not know how I was going to make it through. I believe that if it was not for this site of PURE/REAL brotherhood I would have been lost in life. You know, to some people out there, what we do is rediculous to them, but i think not. For the past few days i've done nothing but stay glued to this site hoping that my hobby that makes me feel peaceful would pull me through this hard time that me, my friends and family are going through. So far it has and I am feeling, (little by little) alot better. Thanks LS1TECH believe it or not this forum does alot more then help and educate, it can pull people even out of the darkest holes............Long live the brotherhood of GM!

Sorry to hear of your loss. I've yet to lose anyone really close to me but I know I will one day if I'm lucky enough to live that long myself.

I'm glad our site has been of some help in getting you through this terrible experience. God bless all who've been affected by this.

Sorry to hear about your loss!!! I to have lost alot of close family members in the past year more than I wanted. Just keep your head up and think positive. I dont know if you have thought about a tribute to your freind, but I made the choice to buy and build my car after my step-dad who passed in July. My prayers go out to you and your family. Happy holidays and keep on modding.

I'm in the same boat as Colonel. I too, have yet to lose someone very close, but I know that day will come.

I am sorry to hear of your loss. My condolences. It is nice to hear that you are finding some comfort in our site and mutual love for the hobby. Keep positive.

I know exactly what you mean. Sometimes we can't handle all the stress and upset all at the same time, and doing something else can help us get through a bad emotional time. Sorry for you loss.

Yeah man, keep your head up and be a soldier. That's all you can do. Your friend has passed on to better things now and would definately want the best for you. It makes me(us) feel good that this site can actually impact someone like that. Keep reading man, I wish I could think of something funny to say right now but i'm fresh out stupid things to say . Keep pluggin on man, things will be ALRIGHT...

So sorry to hear of your loss. Your friend may have passed in a physical sense, but you'll always have him in your thoughts. Honor him by continuing to do something you both enjoyed....

It's perfectly fine for a man to express his feelings, and I'm so glad you felt like doing so.....
