    OT: Tell your loved ones what they mean to you...

    And do it often.

    Sometimes, on the road of life, we experience things that can’t possibly be planned for.

    And sometimes it takes a tragic event in the life of another to help us see just how well we have it. It’s in these moments of clarity that we can truly appreciate our own circumstances and duly cherish those who fill our lives with laughter and meaning.

    I spent yesterday writing my father’s and brother’s obituaries (among a million other things) and it was a sobering experience. I still have another million things to do, but I felt the message in this post was too important enough not to make some time for it.

    So today, maybe spend some extra time with your own family; give your parents a call; revisit an old friendship; and make a new memory. I just know that Craig and Brock would have liked to see some positive spring forth from this ordeal. And I would too.

    I’m not a real tech savvy guy, but I’d really like these video news clips saved before the sites bring them down. Can someone please tell me how to do that without video recording software?

    (One of the sites said Brock was 21, but he was 23…and would have turned 24 yesterday.)

    I am so sorry for your family. My prayers go out to you and your family/friends during this time. It's so very true... we get caught up in the day to day and don't take nearly enough time to tell the ones we love how much we value and care about them.

    Oh Liq, I'm so sorry.

    My thoughts are with you at this time. Best wishes too for when the arrangements have been made and the funerals are over. That time can be much more difficult because the need to carry on and get things done is over.

    Nothing can really be said, can it.

    So sorry to hear about your family there. It was very kind of you to try and use this rough moment in your life to inspire others though, much appreciated.

    As far as saving the news stories, I took a peek at the player and page source but I don't know how to save the raw video files on their own. However, I do have some video capture software on my laptop that I could probably record them if need be and send them to you.

    My condolences Liq.

    For the videos, use Firefox and install the addon Downloadhelper. It lets you download anything from any site ( was originaly designed for downloading youtube videos ).

    Going to hug my wife now.

    EDit : I downloaded the clips in case you dont see this in time. PM me if you need the movie files.

    What the..
    holy..
    oh, damn. I don't know what to say.

    I try always to think about what you mention in this thread. Sometimes we get carried away, though.

    This is such a heavy burden, I'm so sorry. God..

    I wish you and your family strength.
    Strength to mourn.
    Strength to cherish.
    Strength to endure.
    Strength to carry your burdens through this time of loss.


    May better days lie ahead.

    Liq, your efforts under such horrible circumstances truly deserve a "masterfully done hero". You and yours are in my thoughts and prayers.

    I can't put into words how sad I am for you, Liq. I love you man. I wish I had something better to say, but words don't really mean much in a time like this.

    If you still need those videos, let me know your email. Actually I think I have one for you, so I'll send to that.

    Liq - I'm so so sorry. I can't even imagine what you are going through. My wife and kids got extra hugs tonight.

    Your writing on these forums, on a subject of trivial importance, has a wit and elegance that is unmatched around here. These obituaries, I'm sure the most heartfelt writing you can do, are masterful tributes. I can't imagine how I'd sum up a family member in just a few hundred words, but reading your words, I feel like I have a real glimpse at your family. They seem like wonderful men.
