My friend Dopey(David Smith) is a brother to me. I was just informed that he was taken to the hospital for a drug overdose and is on a ventilator. His family is awaiting the results of a brain scan to see if there is any activity. He is in a coma and they are afraid that he is brain dead. I like this place and the people here so naturally I come here to share. I am beside myself and don't know what else to do. Any positve thoughts will be greatly appreciated. Namaste
sending positive thoughts and prayers your way
Positive thoughts are not very easy to say in this case.
I have a very personal view of Death.
I'm alway afraid to share it with others, as it can hurt some feelings.
So all I can say is, That I'm sure whatever happens to your friend, he will be happy with the result.
Positive thoughts your way Hokey. I am so sorry. Prayers your way too, and some (( hugs)) to comfort you.
I was late to forum again and saw down the page that he did not make it. I am sorry for your loss, and that of the family. Stay strong dear heart.
oh that's terrible..Hope he will be okay. If not, fear not, death is not the end. Warm wishes to you. Be grateful for what you do have, and that you were fortunate enough to share a part of your life with such a great person.
Hokey thats very sad. Hows his family holding up? How are you doing? I not really sure if you believe or not but I'll say a prayer for your friend, his family and you. You have alot of friends here and we fight like family, that said, you are part of this family too and we care.
coming to you
though i know not
the good they'll do
just sit there
with a long stare
and pleasant dreams today
i wish i could've bought
the glory of heaven
to give you what you sought
a friend or seven
A lit flame
In David's Name
I hope he gets better soon Hokey, my thoughts are with you, blessed be!
So sorry about your friend. Positive thoughts on their way.
My heart goes out to him and his family...and to you as well!
Hokey, this disease is so tragic. Please know I've been there and my thoughts are weighing heavy in my heart, for you as well.
My sincere hope that all turns out well for him. He is lucky that he has a family that loves him. I hope this, along with all the well wishes, will aid in strengthening him and pulling him through.

I hope they begin to feel better soon, it is never good to lose someone, family or friend, hope you feel better as well soon too my friend!
When a friend is facing trouble
Its hard to know what to say,
Often we say nothing,
Or even run away.
Maybe a friend is hurting,
so hard to know what to do,
So we offer our thoughts
To say we're hurting too.
Sometimes you need to know
that you are not alone,
When tears are overflowing,
and hearts are cold as stone.
It's the loving prayers of others
that balance our lives
For when we measure love,
It's still the thought that counts.
sending you lots of hugs & strength to see this time through
I'm so sorry for your loss...
I read your hub and shed a tear.
How hard this must be for you and your friends family. You have all my best wishes for a positive outcome.
Hokey I am truly sorry. Take some time to heal we will be here. My thoughts are with you and the family at this time.
Sorry to hear. Try to keep your chin up, as my dad would say. There is always something positive to learn, from every event in our life, we must be able to pick those out, so we can grow. I certainly hope things turn positive for you.
Oh Hokey I am so sorry for your loss. I wish I were there to give ya a hug...Just be with the ones you love right now. Mourn the loss of your friend but also celebrate the life he shared with you all.
I'm sorry about your loss of someone close, but at least while he was here, he had a real friend. Stay strong.
So sorry to hear about your friend. His troubles are over now, though, so I send hugs and warm thoughts to you and his family.
Dopey my brother. I love and miss you with all my heart. It is now broken and I hope the tear that has been rendered will let some light in. I wish nothing more right now than to join you. All things in good time. Please reincarnate and come back into my life. I miss you...........
I am so very sorry for your loss. My deepest and sincerest thoughts are with you. I am a good listener and my door is always open, please feel free to send emails at anytime.

Hokey, I am so sorry for your loss. My heart is grieving for you. I have said a prayer for you.
'Say not in grief 'he is no more' but live in thankfulness that he was'
I love you Dopey! Please be in peace.

Better to have loved and lost than never to have loved, but hard to reconcile in the moments of loss I guess.
He was a lucky guy Hokey, having you as a friend.
This is my friend. I am using his picture as a tribute. He is missed.
Prayers and thoughts are with you and your friend during this difficult time. Warmest wishes, Ladybird
Hokey, I don't think I can say anything to help. I have lost loved ones too. Hang in there. I am sorry for your loss, but I hope you can take comfort in knowing your friend is no longer in pain.
hokey i am truly sorry to hear this sad news... please take your time to heal, we will all be here thinking of you hun
Sending hugs to you, Hokey, and sending kindest and best toughts to Dopey (who is probably relieved and okay, where ever he is) and his family.
So sorry for your loss. Keep us posted.
So sorry for your loss. I understand what it is like to lose a loved one.. Take care of yourself..
Oh Hokey sweety! I am so sorry! *HUGS* I wish that there were words that I could say to help cheer you up but I know that there isn't. Just know that I am here for you!
Reading through everyone's post, there's not much more I can add...Good luck, Hockey, and just know that you have an entire forum behind you!
Here is the story so far................
