My Grandad passed away unexpectedly two days ago. He was 4 days shy of his 88th Birthday. He had a good innings as they say, but it's been really hard as it was so unexpected and I didn't get the chance to say goodbye. So thoughts to everyone missing a loved one this Christmas. 

Thanks for giving me a space to share. 

I’m very sorry for your loss CD.

Whenever I lose someone close to me now (or someone I know does), I chug a beer in their honor.

I refuse to be sad for people and instead want to celebrate them. I might not know them at all, but I love the New Orleans approach of celebrate the memory life.

I’ll chug two tomorrow in honor of your loved ones @Chimaira_Devil_#9 and @MB3

If you guys need anything, even to vent, please reach out

Had the first Christmas Eve without my father in law who passed last month. It was definitely very weird. Group is getting smaller and smaller. 

My mother in law accidentally set a place for him at the table, and we left it that way as a sort of tribute to him. 

I feel bad for those who lost someone right before the holiday. We were in that same spot for Thanksgiving. But we pressed on and did it anyway, because as sad as you are that the person you lost isn’t here anymore, you still are and they’d want you to remember them, but also to carry on.

I’m so sorry for everyone’s losses this year. My girlfriends family is dealing with their first Christmas without their patriarch and it’s been a hard time. 

I hope everyone is taking care of their mental health as well as they can this year. I was hoping for a more “normal” Christmas but covid made that impossible unfortunately

I hate having to bump this thread...

Here's a text i sent to my close friends at the end of last month. 

 

 

So my family is going through horrible sh!t and just wanted my close pals from here to know what’s up just cause there’s always questions when people don’t know whats up and wtv and its something i’m comfortable chatting about but there’s so many details that i just want to drop it off so that it’s not something i i have to give all the details every time.

So for the ones in here that weren’t with me when i got the call. I was at tide and Boar with friends Saturday night and at 10pm i got a call from my sister. She was losing her mind, she was just shouting that she found her 16 years old son hung in his closet and she needed me there NOW. I’m the first one she called after 911. So i rushed home, grabbed Krueger and rushed home right away. (i live over 2 hours away) And i had to be the one waking up my parents to drop the news when i got there so it was an horrible drive to say the least to go over that scenario in my head a thousand times. Definitely the worst drive of my entire life

I got to my sister’s place and rushed in, the cops we’e there and i rushed into my nephews room and my sister had his body in her arms. She pulled him down when she found him. He was already all blue and his eyes wouldn’t close. And later that night having to physically zip the bodybag and say goodbye. I’ll never fvcking un-see this scene and see my sister/family being crushed like this.

My goddaughter was with her too when she found him and she’s still in absolute shock like she was completely emotionless for the whole night, they were like 2 beans in a pod.

I facetimed with him days ago and he told me what he wanted for Christmas. He just made the highschool hockey team. He sent me videos of his Halloween costume he made for the next monday. He had countless plans. I’ve been dealing with the cops and a presumed local girl that is part of some internet scam tricked him into sending her nude pictures/videos and blackmailed him into sending 10k or else his life was over, that he’d lose his job, he’d get kicked out of his hockey team, that his family would be ashamed of him and that if he didn’t have the money that he had to kill himself cause his life was over. He couldn’t pay so the videos and pictures were leaked and he panicked. It was non-stop messages for 10-20 minutes straight harrassing him not letting him time to think rationally. He was murdered. I can’t quite put in words what id absolutely and illegally do to that person if she was in front of me

Personally and honestly i’ve been “okay”, i’m basically locked into having to take care of sh!t so i’ve been on the phone reaching out to all my uncles and aunt to come take care of my family. I’ve contacted Willy’s hockey coaches, his bosses, etc etc I know i’m gonna hit a wall at some point but we’ll cross that bridge when we get to it.

 

 

Will was an amazing kid, truly. And it showed with the support we've been given. His friends in school loved him, the guys at his job loved him. They retired his number, they've put the #8 at center ice for the whole season, they have his jersey up at the arena. etc etc Just one anecdote about him... when he was just 14... he worked all summer to save money and at that age... we all bought like... a guitar, a snowboard, a bike, a playstation... but nope. Will bought a brand new snowblower. And he just couldnt wait to use it. He was such a hard worker and was already working a men's job during the summer and on weekends. He was also not just playing hockey, he was also referring. He was amazing, such a tragedy and a big loss for the family.

 

Also Cloe (my goddaughter) has been strong through this so far. She need to keep busy and be with friends. She played her first game after the tragedy. She plays for the highschool team and Will played with the school team too.

They had a minute of silence for Will before her game. They won 2-0. She scored a goal and kept the puck and they marked it "goal for will. #8❤️ " and the goalie got a shutout. And she's the coach's daughter. And he adored Will. He coached him in the past and will was also a ref and took the course under him years ago.

It was a truly beautiful moment through all this darkness and im super proud of my goddaughter. 

I also created a graphic of will's jersey with #8 and now everyone in the community has been using it as their facebook profile. And my sister's friends started a gofund me and they've reached 25k. So its truly beautiful to see the community coming together to help her cause she certainly won't be able to work for awhile and they were certainly not financially prepared for this. She's a single mom and the "dad" who was not around at all, abandonned the kids over a decade ago and never supported them is now starting sh!t and drama we don't need. So much that i had to deal with it and get the cops involved.

I also got shirts printed with the logo of his team on the front and his name and #8 on the back like a hockey tshirt for the funerals and wake. We all wore it and during the funerals i was wearing his actual jersey and i did his eulogy and once i was done i took off the jersey and put it on the coffin for the rest of the ceremony. Man i can't describe how hard it was but the ceremony was beautiful. The school team were all lined up for the ceremony, they all wore their jerseys and had their sticks up for when we walked in and out of the church. Johnny cash and metallica was playing. Will would have been proud

@SterioDesigni hate that it was bumped for this. I’m literally sitting up in bed reading and typing this reply because I’m floors for you all. I have had family, I’ve had friends, I get it. You’ve got a direct line to me if you need it. I’m certified in helping (my job’s equivalent, at least) so if you need it, I’m almost an immediate reply away.
