I just found out a good friend of mine passed away in his sleep 2 days ago. He was a great guy, with a personality that everyone loved. You couldn't help just liking the guy.

He struggled with alcohol and drugs all his life though, and was just a lost soul.

I regret not sharing my faith with him...

My condolences, Kip. Just in the last 7 years, quite a few of my friends and relatives have departed.

Sounds exactly like my uncle.

Found him laying in a roll of carpet with tools still in hand.

Btw this was a group topic under old design... Find it odd that it is a thread now... Don't care but wondering why group messages are now public threads

I can't say for sure, but it's probably from migrating to one platform to another. The new platform might not have been compatible and in an effort not to lose the content they were created into real threads.

Only Tre knows the answer though, I'm just guessing.

I'm sorry for your loss. I lost a friend and a sister to cancer just in the last few years. I've lost my Dad, Mom, Grandma, 2 sisters, and almost all of my aunts, uncles, cousins ( a lot of them) since I started this business 25 years ago. My dad had a stroke in 1987 which caused me to move back home from Indiana to Missouri. He died just a couple months later followed by my 103 year old Grandma who was living with them at the time. It can be difficult to deal with the loss, especially if you are a believer and don't know for sure the spiritual condition of those you lost. I know it is for me anyway. I know people may criticize me for saying things like being a Christian doesn't make you perfect. I truly believe that down to my very core. I believe some people do truly get saved, but don't get victory over certain sins that keep them defeated and on the surface they may not even appear Christian. God knows those who are His even though we may not.
