My Dad is gone...

2012 brings new things to discover as well as uncertainty about the future. It also brings more of that 2012 doomsday BS that has been running rampant the past few years, despite common sense and scientists actually proving that the predicted Mayan doomsday will not happen! But that still doesn't stop idiots like Discovery Channel, History Channel, Patrick Geryl and other morons from continuing to shove their doomsday shows and books down our throats!

Since the world will end in 356 days from now (we are in a leap year, so we have the 29th of February), I've decided to have my own fun with this "phenomenon". Don't worry, I'm not going to talk about how the earth will suddenly reverse its magnetic fields or anything like that. I lack the intelligence to make sense of that stuff.

The reason for this title if I'm not going to talk about 2012? A certain 80's song that critics think is probably the worst song in history.

My Dad is gone...

Posted September 25th, 2009 at 8:34 PM by Mario The World Champion

He passed away around 2 P.M., a few hours after the decision to remove him from life support. As soon as I saw his face devoid of any life, I broke down and cried my eyes out for the first time in many years. I just couldn't take everything anymore.

The past 53 hours have been a big nightmare of a roller coaster for me. I would explain a bit more, but I'm too tired. I've been up since 7 P.M. Wednesday night, only getting a few hours of sleep during that time.

As of right now, I don't know what to do. We're going to call a funeral home so they can take care of everything.

I really need to get some sleep...

    Her's Avatar did the right thing, from what you've said, he wouldn't have had much of a life anyway. Please try to sleep, you deserve it.

    R.I.P your dad.

    Mario, I...don't know what to say. I'm at a loss for words. But, no matter what, if you need someone to talk to, feel free to add me on MSN or just talk to me here.

    This is the time you need to be with friends and family. Talk it out, let your tears flow. It eases the pain. Believe me, it does.

    Anyways, the best thing for you to do right now is sleep.
    Sweet dreams, Mario. Sweet dreams...

    Things do get better, life might never be the same without those who we have lost but things will get better eventually, just hang in there.

    *hugs* I know it was a very hard decision, but at the same time he probably wanted that way. He is in a better place and he doesn't need to suffer. Well I guess right now try to get some sleep. And take as much time as you need. When you are ready to come back online, let me know. Take care of yourself.

    Let your Dad rest in peace. *make sure to keep you and your family in my prayers*

    Ouch...that really does hurt...

    I hope you feel better Mario...I understand even if it isn't soon; things like these take a while to overcome and even after that, it can be quite difficult.

    Take the time to let out your innermost sadness about the situation, and try to get some sleep too. You have to let it all out somehow.

    -hugs- I really do hope you feel better...

    Sleep away, Mario, sleep away. Let the joyful memories fill your dreams and may hope and light fill your life from now on. He turned you into the man you are today, job fulfilled. Continue to prove him a great man by being great yourself.

    Look over the past with a positive outlook; laugh at the funny times you two had together, the times you learned, etc. Just stay strong, it's hard, but you've still got a promising future ahead of you.

    At least he's no longer in pain, Mario. If at all possible, take some comfort in that, okay?

    Try and get some sleep... the next few days are going to be a little tough, but you seem like a fighter, and I'm sure you'll be alright.

    My most sincere condolences go to you and your family, man. I'm... truly sorry.

    Mario sweety.. All I can say for you is that it won't always hurt like this and what you have to do is remember all the good times you had with your dad and you need to keep on to them forever... And if you make room for them in your heart and remember him, he won't really be gone, you just have to make room in your heart and that's were he'll be..

    So sweety all I can say is that I cried my eyes out when I saw my dad dead in his bed and it took forever to stop hurting.. I miss my dad each and every day, I even wrote a song about him.... So I'm probably with few on this forum who can honestly say I know what you're going through... I also lost my dad to a disease, a brain tumor after many years of fighting the disease he eventually lost the battle...

    I hope you got the chance to tell him that you loved him.. And if you didn't then you got to know that he probably knew that you loved him... And were ever he is now he knows...

    So sweety just stay strong.. There is nothing wrong with crying, so you just cry it out cry it all out.. No one is expecting you to be strong and hold it back, holding it in will only hurt your self in the future, so just let it out, talk to someone, I'm here if you need to talk to someone but I doubt I'll be your pick seeing I don't know you that well...

    Awww sweety.... *Huggle* :3
