    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

      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. smile

    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.

    (((Hokey)))
    sending you lots of hugs & strength to see this time through
    (((Shari)))
