Any of you boys want to shoot, now's the time. There isn't one of us that doesn't want to be someplace else. But this is what we do, who we are. Live for nothing, or die for something. Your call.

He was probably upset for a while and the feeling wouldn't go away. Family and friends will always mourn him, but as time goes by it will be easier to live with. As you are mourning him, talk to him, tell him he is in your prayers. He'll come to you in dreams to let you know he's okay.
