    Some sad new came to me early this morning. As some of you may have heard about in southern california, a young teen died is a boating accident. His name was andy brinkley. I grew up with him since kindergarten and charished him as a friend. He loved life, friends and most recently found his way into the mac world. This is just a tribute to him, something to pay my respects as he looks down on us. RIP Andy. We love you Brink.

    Very sorry to hear about your loss, buddy. :(

    If anything good comes out of this, perhaps it is the awareness that harnesses should be worn whenever offshore, and lives will be saved.

    Truly sorry for your loss. Other than my dog and cat, I've never had close family or friends die in my 25 years on Earth. I can't even imagine how losing a friend at such a young age would feel.

    He went to a highschool three blocks away from my school and two of my good friends spent most of today in tears because they knew him.
    I'm so sorry for your loss.

    That is a terrible thing that happened. I know how hard it can be to loose a friend/family member at such a young age. Just like everyone else, my thoughts and prayers will be with his family and friends.

    That's what we're here for. :)
