It's time to talk about Chip...


And what he meant to me.


My most unforgettable character. And such a different loss than that of a relative, or parent... this was my first FRIEND that I lost. And lost suddenly with no warning. One day we were laughing hysterically on the phone and 48 hours later he was gone.


This man was the most unusual person... a hardened, ascary, mean, nasty outlaw biker. With the biggest, warmest most loving heart I've ever met. I always knew where I stood with him. There was no option of bullshit. It was truth always... One of the few people in this world that I could stand up to and tell him that he was dead wrong... and we could fight like cats and dogs - then make up and be just fine.


I don't really have anyone in my life anymore that I can do that with. I miss doing that. It was very .. releasing.


I miss his phone calls.. I miss him calling me Schweetie. I miss knowing that he'd kill for me. I miss his voice and his hugs and his smell. He smelled of laundry soap and cooking.


Oh how he loved to cook!! He used to bring a big bag of groceries over just to cook us a meal... and it ROCKED.


He was Sicilian... and he knew how to cook like a pro. He introduced me to all kinds of cool foods. And cheap red wine...


He loved that I scrapbooked. He loved that I was online with it. And he loved that he was an honorary Threadkiller. He used to drag a kitchen chair into the spare room while I typed at the computer... and watch what I wrote...


"You Threadkillin' babe?"


Yes Chip... I'm threadkilling...


"That's good. You show 'em"


Ok...


Neither Bob nor I will ever get over losing him.. EVER. I miss him every day of my life.


DILLIGAF my friend... DILLIGAF.

It is nice when you have someone in your life who so easily sees your soul and loves you for it. Hold on to the precious memories of him and the feelings you had when with him.
