My best friend Bonehead just had a heart attack! That’s him sitting with Fawn, whom incidentally, is another loose canon that will blow someday! I’m shaking like a leaf, I can’t stop crying, I can’t breathe! I’m in a state of shock and I’m writing this in the middle of a panic attack; so now my heart’s racing, and I’m dizzy! Hmmm… I may just go first!
Bonehead is the only friend I have left, and my best friend! He is generous to a fault! Well what he does is rob Peter to pay Paul all the time. He’s very conscious that his back has gone, just like mine, and he can no longer do Construction work, like his Father who demands it of Bonehead, to carry on the family tradition to his children, etc. So the pressure on him to succeed, is enormous! He feels he’ll disgrace his family if he ends up on disability. He’s from Croatia, so it’s old, European tradition… Stern, but practical
He and I have been as close as two grumpy, old men for over 20 years now! He has helped me to enjoy my life in many ways, and ‘more than’ the brother I never had! He won’t be out of the woods for another 40 hours! Sometimes, a second attack follows, and that’s the one that takes you! That’s how my grandmother went. So I’m sitting here on pins and needles, just waiting to hear some news…
So many people are praying for him fervently already! When he walks into a room, he always brings the sun with him; always helpful, intelligent and funny, and he’s kinda what made me what I am today; a helpful failure… He has become more and more a part of me as the years rolled on! He brightens every life he touches, so now that you know he’s one of us, I was wondering if you could help me by sending up a little prayer for him? ‘Dear God; Let him live! A-Men!’ Would do just fine! Just mean it… He’s one of the better among us! So please pray with me… Thank you all in advance!
