My heart is breaking right now because via FaceBook I found out yesterday that Bill "ObiWan" Bochnik has passed away over the weekend at the tender age of 43
To say I was devastated would be an understatement & some who know me do not understand the tears which I shed since he was never a boyfriend or lover of any sort but a Beautiful Man who God lead into my life to be the Brother that I needed & for me to be the Big Sister that he never had at a time in our lives when we needed support that our blood relatives could not understand to give
Bill was much more than an Internet Friend, yes we may have met via the Internet on the Divorce Busting board but long after our associations ended on there we were still sharing our lives both on the internet as well as in Real Life
We shared our Trials & Tribulations, Our Victories & Our Defeats, Our Sorrows & Our Joys & Our Fears & Our Loves for our wayward spouses, our children & our families – Laughing, Crying & Watching in Amazement how children don’t see color like screwed upadults & How marvelous it is that we’re managing to raise another generation of Sci-Fi fans for the good old style Sci-Fi with his son & my grandson who play together & talked on the phone together as over the years Bill’s come up to CT both alone as well as with his son my "nephew" Matthew to shop & play with my Grandson
Life is much too short on this earth to squander in petty stuff we don’t know how long we have on this earth & Life Ended Much Too Soon for my Lil Bro Bill
I thank God that he used the Internet to bring my Brother by Another Mother into my life & the life of my children, grandson & husband who all enjoyed Bill’s sense of humor when he came up to CT to visit & join in on our family events
Although I do have a biological brother; Bill was much more of a Brother to me , my children & my husband than my actual blood brother has been over the years so I morn the loss of a True Brother in Bill rather than just a few tears for a Friend who’s gone on to meet his maker
