    Best friend From High school Died last night.

    My best friend from High school passed last night from Cancer of the Lymph Nodes. He was 26.

    He found out he was terminal when he was testing for an additional degree blackbelt. The Doctor said I don't understand how your even walking! He was one tough SOB!! Henry my prayers go out to you and your fiance. You will be missed.

    Way, way, too young. I'm so sorry for your loss and that of his family as well.

    We have many associates, and few true friends in life...losing a best friend is a tough one.
    Sorry to hear this...you're in our thoughts.

    Sorry to hear of your loss man. Thats tough, I know that if I were to have lost my best friend at that age, it would have been like losing a brother. We were pretty tight then.

    Sad to hear this. Sometimes I think of my friends/classmates who died and you would not think that this happened to them. Especially if they were athletes.

    Sorry to hear about your loss. High School friendships sometimes seem to be the strongest. Sounds like he had Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma. It is a very aggressive form of Cancer. You have my condolences and will be in our prayers.

    Loss is always bad but worse when it involes somebody so young.

    I am very sorry for your loss. I lost my best friend over ten years ago. And I still have things pop in my mind I want to tell him. But I still laugh about some of the times we had together.

    Once again I don't know what to say, but I understand and am truly sorry it happened.
