I have mentioned in a couple of earlier posts about Boss #1's brother having passed away a few days ago, and about how he was a pretty well known blogger. I have been reading the comments on what was his blog, and reading posts on other blogs about the man. It seems everyone pretty much claims to have known him best. The guy was a tortured soul and I am not sure anyone really knew him.
I never met him at all, so I am not really one to judge. I do know the man's brother, however, and the outpouring of love on his brother's blog has overwhelmed and comforted him beyond measure. I mentioned yesterday that if only his brother had known how much he was loved. Boss #1 agreed.
The guy is gone, never to return, but his family is still here. If the "I knew him best" stories comforts them, then so be it. Let them continue.
