Another Uzi

I'm shaking so much it's hard to type this, I just got a comment on an old Uzi post, it read:

I wanted to say few words about how life is crazy sometimes. I met Uzi in Switzerland when We did an internship overthere and he became one of my best friends since there. The last mail i got from him was when he was planning to come over to Brazil for Carnaval due the trip to south america. But suddenly he changed his mind and decided going to Asia due de cheaper price. So, i mailed him when i knew he was travelling in Asia but didn't get the answer. The time ran fast and i realized he didn't write and ask a friend of us from Switzerland about him. He didn't get news aswell, but we never could think about the Tsunami story. Yesterday (16/11/2006, yeah Nov/2006), I got an email from Nathan, an american guy that worked with us and traveled a lot with us around europe, asking me about Uzi cuz he mentioned two winters ago about study in United States. He asked me too if i had seen the news from web and if it was true? I didn't realised and wrote Uzi Saghi at Google. So far, i figured out he was one of the disappeared from the Tsunami. I got quite sad, couldn't sleep properly. Almost 2 years since that and i just knew yesterday. He would come to Brazil. Damn. Can't believe yet. I'll pray to him and his family. He was a clever guy and one of my best mates from Switz.
Luis from Brazil

I don't know why I am so shocked but I am, am shaking so much I can barely write and keep deleting mistyped words. I cannot fathom knowing someone is alive for 2 years and then realising that not only has your friend been dead all that time but he died a very horrible death. Luís, tenho tanta pena que tenhas sabido desta maneira, e só agora. He is where I was 2 years ago only the world isn't as sympathetic abt it anymore, for the most part the world has forgotten abt it and he is pretty much alone in his grief.

Only he isn't. He commented on my old blog and I hope he goes back to see if I've replied, he didn't leave a contact, I hope he finds me here.

Please God, let him find me again. I never got to know Uzi through his eyes.

Oh darling Johnny, this is awful, so awful. Of course its shocking to have someone come out of the blue like this and only just be aware of what happened. And to not be able to contact them to talk about Uzi, to offer each other support...

I hope he goes back to your old blog and finds you.

CRAP! I left you a big long-winded comment yesterday and it's not here... did you delete?? SHit... I don't think I'll be able to recreate what I wrote...

It was something about how comments on old blog posts feel sort of like time travel... it brings you back to that emotional state of when you first created the entry... which in this case is both heart-wrenching and more than a little bittersweet.

Dear Lioness, I came by here before but had no idea what to say. Except: ow. How awful for Luis, how shocking for you both. I hope he finds you again. I'm sure you'd have so much to talk about.

Nancy said...

Oh dear Lioness,

I hope the two of you can find one another and perhaps heal together.

Dear Lioness, I hope you two can find each other and help each other. Has anything happened yet dear?
Thinking of you as the sun rises,
