If he couldn't run it would torture him. He's still runnin'. I guarantee it. Most importantly you still run. He will be trailing you.

I am sorry for your loss man, I know exactly what you are going through. I went through the same thing with a cousin of mine when I was in sixth grade and she was only eight years old. It's tough to deal with but you and family need to be strong and recognize that he is in a much better place now and he won't be suffering anymore. You and your family will be in my thoughts and prayers, stay strong it is the best thing you can do and again I am so sorry to hear about your loss.

My heart goes out to you in what must be a time of terrible grief.  I hope that you, your family and friends can support each other through this loss and find a way to honor and celebrate Andrew's life each and every day of yours.  Let us know how we can help.

 :'( I am so sorry for your loss. I can't say I've had a very similar experience, but my uncle died a few years ago from Lou Gehrig's disease. It was so sad to watch his health decline until he was reduced to sitting in one chair all day every day and using a computer to talk for him.

I will keep you and your family in my prayers.

So, sorry to hear of your loss. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

Those we lose. 
Don't go away.

It really is a shame when anybody, and especially a  young person, dies. I feel like the sadness of his death has been amplified by the connection that traceurs and traceuses have together in sport and philosophy. My best of wishes to your family, and hopefully parkour will not be a negative experience for you now.

I'm very sorry to hear this Andrew and do be sure that the community here has our thoughts and condolences for your brother today.
Training is not about instant gratification. Anyone looking for constant progress will not stick with training for long. The essence of training is the experience of the training, and what you learn about yourself through it.

   every footstep i take will be for those who can step no more, just remember what impact he had on u and pass it on to others. he will be missed sincerely.  :'(

            In heaven you never fall while doing parkour, each move is executed perfectly and precisely. he probably wants to show off what he can do now and make us jealous, god bless you andrew

You and your family are in our thoughts. I cannot imagine your suffering, you have my most sincere condolences. May the spirit of Parkour keep you going through this horribly difficult time: do not see obstacles, only opportunities. May the loss of your brother allow you to find the strength you never knew you had.
