I lost a very dear friend this morning, got a call from his wife saying he passed out at the bottom of the patio steps, I got over as quick as I could and found him on the ground, checked for a pulse but found nothing, he was very cold, I didn't think CPR would be any good as it was about ten minuets or so before I got there, I waited till the fire department showed but they could not revive him, nether could the paramedics when they arrived.

A very dear friend, Dale you will be missed.

Very sorry to hear this Terryl, not only very upsetting for you but no doubt traumatic. May he rest in peace.

A little less analogue, and a lot more crap.

Take one step at a time, but do check with his wife (and any close family) to ensure they are OK in their hour of need.

Sorry for loss and sadness. Have lost many here, it's something one can never adapt to, some forced acceptance, but never forgotten.
