I’m breaking from my usual introduction in this posting as I am mourning the passing of a good friend who touched many peoples lives and has shocked all of us friends and family in his passing. This THEJNSREPORT is dedicated to a man I am proud to call a friend Kyle Spidle. I heard the unfortunate news from a mutual friend early Thursday morning and it was like everything went quiet and in slow motion. Words registered in my mind but the actual acceptance of the truth of the matter was too much for my mind to handle at first. The day drifted and dragged as the surrealism of the days events washed over me against my best efforts not to show its effects on my face. I failed miserably.
I have been in a dis-associative state since I heard the words that my friend Kyle Spidle has passed away September 20, 2012. From the brief time that I knew Kyle he always had a room warming smile, an outgoing personality,and friendly demeanor. The following is a poem I dedicate to Kyle’s memory.
Too quick we are to take embrace in a comforting thought through time and space
that today’s victory’s can erase tragic falls from top to base.
Life will give you its subtle grace while swiftly with ignorance you often race
towards your destiny you will have to face while you go here n there and place to place
Till ends meet and so your chase has left no clues no single trace
And until that day we meet again face to face
I pray God keep your soul warm and safe.
Kyle Spidle RIP brother till we meet again.
