    That sucks, but why tell us this? My best friend's cousin committed suicide by letting a train hit her car, but you I didn't start an entire thread about it.

    I don't mean to be offensive, but I really want to know the reasons.

    I agree. I don't mean to sound like an asshole. But you are basically saying "Hey someone you don't know just died."

    If you a going to post something like this, go somewhere with it. Was this someone who made a big impact in her community? Did she have a long battle with cancer, but her attitude and spirit empower the people around her? What does this mean to you? Your friend?

    Otherwise your post is pretty meaningless.

    I'm not trying to be harsh at all, but its not like its his aunt that died its his best friend, and unless the fella is 12 years old, a third party death is not the biggest deal. Therefore, I'm curious to the psychological reasons for Autovolt wanting to share this information with us (I'm not saying he shouldn't have because he's free to start whatever thread he likes). I am trying to approach this as scientifically as possible without offending the guy b/c of the touchy subject.

    Theres no scientific approach in this. and we dont know how close autovolt was to this lady. someone is hurting and needs an open ear. thats the only approach i see

    In deference to good taste, I will not call this a zombie thread.

    I never understood why people post about friends relatives dying. I can understand if it is Mom is in the hospital, pray for her/I won't be on for a long while/etc, but when it is a friend's relative I don't see how it matters to us. Yeah if it is your mom who is sick or dead then I wish her/you well because you are a friend. I don't know your friend.

    I don't mean to be harsh. But when I hear things like this it reminds me of Spaceballs. "I am your father's Brother's Nephew's Cousin's former roommate.." "What does that make us?" "Absolutely nothing.."

    Well. If it doesn't bother you so much, maybe you should just not bother posting in the thread. See how that works?
