Reading these heart-breaking posts reminds me of my grandmother's funeral, nearly five years ago. My uncle read a poem that I found very moving:

Quote:
A ship sails and I stand watching till she fades on the horizon and someone at my side says She is gone.

Gone where? Gone from my sight, that is all. She is just as large now as when I last saw her. Her diminished size and total loss from my sight is in me, not in her.

And just at that moment, when someone at my side says she is gone, there are others who are watching her coming over their horizon and other voices take up a glad shout - There she comes!

That is what dying is. An horizon and just the limit of our sight.

Lift us up O Lord, that we may see further.
God speed, my friend. This isn't "The end." We'll be seeing you, when it is our time.

I don't know where this came from, someone named Strangis heard it and recorded it as John Wayne spoke at the funeral of director Howard Hawks in 1977

"Do not stand at my grave and weep.

I am not there. I do not sleep.

I am a thousand winds that blow.

I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am sunlight on ripened grain.

I am the gentle autumn's rain.

When you awaken in the mornings hust,I am the swift uplifting rush of quiet birds in circled flight.

I am the soft star that shines at night.

Do not stand at my grave and cry, I am not there.

I did not die.


Carried this clipping since my son passed Jean, and my wifes brothers son also.
All way before their time and all way before us.

Take care of yourself and family now they need you more than ever and everyone knows you did everything you could for Kyle.

Wow, I had to go back for a few edits, couldn't hold back either.

It never gets easier you just have to do the best you can. Remember those good times and cherish those memories.

From Kyles dad:

Quote:
Kyle Meyer & His Intrepid Buddies July 19, 2010

Thank you all for helping, mentoring, guiding, challenging, entertaining, and most of all, befriending my son Kyle.

The Internet is adding new ways for people to relate and become friends, and Kyle coming here is a perfect, positive example.

Kyle had very focused areas of interest, and was happiest communicating with people with the same interests. He was truly at home here.

While your dedication to a particular Chrysler platform brought him here, he learned a lot more here than just cars. Among other things, you guys taught him how men with differing opinions and diverse backgrounds can get along for the greater good. Basically, respect. With all the bad stuff on the Internet for people his age, any father would be happy to have his son learn the ropes here.

Kyle took great pride in his posts and in his early days with you guys, relived them endlessly for his brother and I. He was absolutely mental about the meets and put a lot of preparation into his cars for them.

I could tell he was conflicted when his second gen Intrepid took a dump and he wanted to still hang with you guys. After that, I think he fancied himself as an Intrepid purist and got an earlier car. I was so proud and impressed the way he updated it with later parts. That car was his pride and joy. Not because it was special or unique, but because he brought it back to life himself and made it just the way he wanted it.

A typical Kylism: When he was eight or ten, as we rode past a Chevy dealership he asked what my favorite new Z/28 color was. When I told him white with orange stripes, Kyle moaned back “Daaaaad, that’s SS only.”

If Kyle had any outstanding debts, owed anyone parts, or has open issues of any kind, please do not be shy and get in touch with me through Dan. Likewise, if anyone has any questions, thoughts or concerns about Kyle, nobody enjoys talking about him more than me.

For those of you that got Kyle’s sense of humor, he will still make me laugh every day for the rest of my life.



Steve Meyer

What Mr. Meyer said there made me feel really good inside. As I told many of you guys off the boards, Kyle was like our little brother. He never said it outright, but he looked up to us. It makes me feel good that even though I may have not heard it directly that I could/may have impacted his life somehow and maybe it changed him for the better.

Kyle, we'll meet again someday, I am sure I am gonna need some help one day up there...and thats how to change/rebuild a tranny.

RIP Ginger.

Dan please pass along my thanks to Steve for taking the time to write to us. That was very nice. Very good sentiments there.


RIP Kyle!


I guess maybe it's ok to ask now... was there ever any more news on what actually happened? I never saw anything....

Yup, very classy. I know we gave Kyle crap all the time, even though we knew he was a smart kid and would make something out of himself for sure.
I still laugh about this one I posted for him as a motivational moment. It really fit with him working at the grocery store and his future ahead of him....lol
