Last Night ................


I dreamed about my friend who was murdered last month. He and his little dog were walking across my backyard , then we were sitting on the ground talking. He wasn't talking , but his friend was talking to me. I don't remember what the conversation was about .................. but my friend was just sitting there listening and he had a weary look on his face , that made me sad.


This morning his Mother called and while we were on the phone , someone called her and said there had been an arrest in his murder. The same person called again later and said he was in jail but hasn't been charged with the murder , but he is the prime suspect. Hopefully there will be an arrest soon , it's already been over a month. Each day that goes by , it seems less likely they'll find whoever did this. I wonder if the dream was preparing me for this news.


Last month I posted the pic above , my friend painted the star. We were getting ready to open a new business at the time , there were some problems with the lease and we didn't get the business started. I hope that painting is packed away with some other stuff we have stored away. He was an artist , eccentric by nature and his heart was big. I miss him and his crazy schemes , he was always up to something.
Next month on his birthday , I plan to have a costume party in celebration of his life. He loved costumes , he was a clown for my oldest daughter's 2nd birthday and played Santa for her and my nephew that Christmas. I told his Mom as I was going through my pics , he was dressed up in most of the pics I have. I did have a few of him and his little dog , his dog was ran over and killed the first of this year. He had been depressed about that and called me soon after to discuss what he wanted when he died. He said he didn't want anyone to cry , he wanted us to have a party and celebrate. I told him I couldn't promise I wouldn't cry because it was human nature , but I would have a party and celebrate his life , as we were talking I never thought it would be so soon. He was the type that lived each day like it was his last , so although it was a short life , it was a full life and I'll think of him each time I see a twinkling star !!

I pray you and your friends family will be able to have closer. What a blessing to have had such a caring friend in your life.

They say thats called a visitation. A visit from your friend probably preparing you for the news and giving you a hint about what happened. I too lost my best friend a few years ago so I know its hard for you. I have something from my friend too that I cherish. I hope whatever happens that who killed him whether it was his friend or someone else is caught. I'll never know the details of my friends death, he died in his home and was found a few days later badly decomposed. I hope you'll be alright.

Your post is a wonderful tribute to your friend. I hope the police can find evidence that will convict the person who committed the crime.

Sounds to me your friend is my kinda friend to have. A celebration on his b-day is a wonderful and thoughtful gesture; he will love that. Wish I could make it for the party !
