  16. To your family and friends, I am so very sorry for this loss. ESPECIALLY to your wife kids and immediate family id like to reach out and say. I know some of you and some I dont but you unfortunately are in my same club….those of us left behind …. My beloved brother we lost 9 months ago from the same thing. He was a year older than Beau, he is also originally from Lowell he also left 3 kids a wife mom dad and sister. He was such a brilliant beautiful kind and funny man. They have so much in common. To the people he loved most and who loved him back… I wish you peace throughout this almost impossible grief. I hope that when you feel the hurt rising up that you let it out and dont try to hold it in even if its the 100th time that day. Let those tears flow. Laugh when you have a good memory come up with each other and cry at the same time. They go hand in hand even almost a year later. Tell his kids its ok to ask the hard questions and answer them as honestly as you can. Remember that no matter what he can still hear you. Go to his favorite place and say all that you need or want to. Dont forget to say his name, talk about all the GOOD things. Ignore anyone that is not helpful but hold on to those who are and remember that you can get through this…. One hour One moment at a time. It will not get easier with time. Not for us select few. Now you just have to learn to live with this hurt but you will do it because you have to. My absolute heart break is aching for u too. Im so sorry.
