"So maybe I’m crazy. But aren’t we all a little crazy in love?”
Sometimes you forget where your from. The people you know… knew will remind you of that. I sat in the ICU waiting room wondering what I’d write when the time came, what I’d have to say about my friend. And for a while before that I wanted so much more time with him, make up for lost time and his forgiveness for not returning his last call. I was eleven going on twelve when I met Julian, he was thirteen. My sister brought him home along with her boyfriend at the time, David, now my ex brother in law. I was so shy, but he was never anything but comforting.
I was going to continue adding the important details as to why he was so important in my life. But I woke up realizing all that doesn’t really matter. Because he was, he was important in my life. Up until a month ago, we weren’t really talking. His girl, which he had just proposed to, didn’t quite understand our friendship. So to make things simple my sister and I stayed away. Early in February he calls me up saying that he has to see me, that he felt it had been too long and he woke up needing a Puli fix. It just so happened that later on that evening he was driving a bus around the same time I got off work, so I road with him till he got off and he drove me home. We talked a lot. We talked about the way life was and how I had been feeling about waiting for the right man to come. I started saying that men, people in general want to wait before they commit. That it can take a while before you truly know that you love that person. He cut me short and called bullshit. He said “I knew I loved you from the second day I met you, I knew I loved Puli” ” It happens in an instant, it doesn’t take a lifetime to know that you love someone.” That right there, says everything. It says what type of person he was, what type of father, son, brother, spouse, and friend he was. I needed to remind myself that I once knew that. That when the time came to give my heart, that I would just do it. Because it doesn’t take a lifetime to know that you love someone, but it can take a lifetime to forget someone you did. I don’t think I could ever forget him and I hope I never do. He was six foot somethin, he’d say I was five foot nothin. I love you.
Thank you guys for your thoughts and prayers, he’s still in a coma but is stable… I woke up with peace and I feel good about it. Love you guys

I don’t say stuff like this often, and if any of you have any faith at all, could you please pray for my friend. His name is Julian and he’s one of my oldest friends. I just got word that he had a heart attack, flat lined was brought back and is now going to be in an induced coma so that when they bring him back his organs don’t fail. I’m crying and worried because I’ve shared so much with him and it’s hard to imagine saying goodbye so soon. I’ve known him since I was 11 and he’s the only man who’s love and friendship has never failed me. So if any of you could send out a thought, a prayer, a whisper of hope for him, I’d greatly appreciate it. Thanks guys xoxo
