    I got some sad news today

    Remember last year when I was having all the problems with my wife. I got married to her on my birthday 7/27/07, She split to go back to her drug addict ex-boyfriend two weeks later.

    Man, I was so much in love with her, I put up with more crap then most men would of.

    Well I just got word today that she died on our 1 year anniversary. And for those of you that remember, it was also my marriage to mew wonderful wife.

    I should be glad that she will never cause anyone any more pain, but I am not. A part of me is lost as well, as she was the one that rocked my world(musically). She basically drug me back into playing. Encouraged me when others laughed and walked a way. Besides the guitar stuff, she left me with many lessons learned in life. Mostly hard and harsh lessons, but some were good.

    She died of an enlarged heart. Toxicology will take another 2 months according to her mother. I sure she was tweaking because she was on the road. She died in a rest stop in Utah, her supposed boyfriend sleeping in the truck. Ambulance her to the hospital where she was pronounced DOA. She died alone, He wasn't there with her. She died around strangers.

    She is in a better place now. God has her.

    ugh.. what a bummer man. My condolences.

    Don't stop playin' music though.. who cares what people say.. just keep playing.. it's good for the soul and it will help you heal.

    It's my biggest regret in life so far.. letting my musical abilities fade away.

    Thanks guys.

    When you are treated like crap you figure its gonna be real easy to good, I'm glad they're dead. What a piece of crap that person was.

    Truth is, it's not all that easy to really say that and mean it.

    I will always be grateful to her for making me play my guitars again. It has been a passion that I gave up years ago for another woman.

    I am in good hands with a great lady. She has been my soul mate since I've meet her.

    Good Morning Sid...

    Sorry to hear this news. Regardless of how "sour" your relationship went with her, no matter how much understandable anger you have towards her now, she was a part of your life, and the loss still hurts...even after all this time.

    Sorry for your loss. And let your new love be there for you.

    OK, folks, I hope it's not true that stuff runs in three's. I just got word that my mom has cancer of the liver. I guess the doc's are saying it came from somewhere else. They just haven't nailed it down.

    As far as Jackie the ex goes. Think well of her as god has her and she is in good hands.

    But, I sure could use those prayers for my mom.
