He reminds me too much of myself...sometimes it's concerning.
You must realize something. When we lose someone we are near and dear to us, it's incredibly painful. This is potentially the only place for one of us to vent too, and you step in by saying potentially some of the overlapping things that tore a LG from his life. (Anti rhetoric when you are in pain all sounds the same even if it isn't.)
and hopefully I haven't said too much, but for what it's worth I'd let loom watch my daughter.
