GuitarRockstar Has Left the Building

I've been putting off writing this...there was so much I wanted to say, many things I wanted to convey; but, right after, I just didn't feel up to the task. Weeks later, I hope I can express what I - and all of us that loved him - are feeling.

On October 12, in the early morning hours, my sister's boyfriend of almost ten years, known here as GuitarRockstar, was killed in a car accident. He was days away from celebrating his 27th birthday.

He'd want to be remembered as a musician, a comedian, and an all-around fun and great friend. He was all of those things. He, also, in the past ten years, had become family. To me, he was a friend, a brother-in-law, and nearly a brother.

It's difficult to believe that he is gone - that he won't be there helping my grandpa and Mom cook Thanksgiving dinner, that we won't get to hear him and friends jamming on their guitars at the end of holidays and get-togethers, that Worm and I won't get to go out with he and Tweeze anymore (some of our most fun going-out-nights).

He was a wonderful person, despite his demons (who doesn't have them?). He was there for all of us in the family, at different times, when we needed him most. He was there for his friends. He was real - and he was loyal. Since his death, the outpouring of love and grief from people near and far has been overwhelming. He touched so many lives.

I want to say more - I wish I could say more - but there's still a lot of pain and whole helluva lot of numbness. October was a really tough month, and I'm still in a sort of auto-pilot, surreal state of mind.

Forgive me for not updating sooner, but there it is. I had wished to write a much better announcement entry for him; maybe that will come. 'Til then, all I can say is, this fucking sucks - and we miss him.
