Death In The Family

Everyone's favourite thread, whoop whoop.

 

My great-aunt died from COVID in a care home in England. She was 3 months shy of her 100th birthday. She was the youngest of 7 siblings and therefore the last of her generation. I was lucky to know her quite well when she was living independently, and she would always talk about her service overseas during WWII. It's a pity that her burial wishes etc. can't be honoured, but we take solace in the fact that she died peacefully and it's doubtful that her incredible life would have gone on much longer.

 

Sorry for your loss mate.

Sorry for your loss such a tragic loss of life, mental health is such a massive problem, always hard no matter what the age when someone takes there own life but always seems worse somehow when it is someone who should have there whole life in front of them and should be at the happiest time of there life. RIP you and your friend are in my thoughts.

My great-aunt earlier today, 68. Not Covid-related. Very sudden, very unexpected. She was a real force of nature, incredibly funny, big heart. A proper Dagenham bird. I’m gonna miss her a lot.

You know its never good thing when your mobile starts pinging with message notifications at 230am. And so it transpired.

 

Sadly a good friend of mine was found dead at home yesterday evening from what I can gather. Whilst it was a shock, it wasn't a real surprise,  as he had a long history of substance abuse (Columbian marching powder a favourite), mental health issues and a long term damage to his heart having survived to my knowledge at least 4 heart attacks. So to get to mid 50s well- he did well.

 

As I put on social media it was complex emotions today on hearing the sad news about Si. But that was him. Loveable, exasperating, kind, annoying, laughter. He could be the best friend in the world or the biggest cunt. There was little in the middle and life was certainly never dull with Si in the room.

 

Worlds a little darker today.

Sorry for your loss Phil.

 

I had an acquaintance (I never called him friend) like that. Dead from alcohol poisoning at 52.

 

Sadly, too often an occurrence. Larger than life, so life is short.

 

Take care Phil.

Please accept my condolences for your loss Phil matey. Lovely tribute to read too. In the last 8 months I have lost 2 close friends. Mark my friend and former neighbour before he moved to a new residence died in October 2019 aged 41 with heart problems and my colleague and friend Grace died aged 27 from a cocaine overdose in June 2020.

Thanks everyone. 

 

What I found slightly annoying/funny yesterday was the speed by which on social media he achieved virtual Sainthood status. By his own admission Si was a troubled fella so I think/know he'd find it funny that suddenly he apparently did no wrong over the years.

That’s always the way though isn’t it, people are too scared to say ‘well actually I thought he was a cunt’ about dead people. If they were a cunt when they were alive, chances are they’re still a cunt when they’re dead.

 

Condolences to you (just to be clear, I’m not saying your friend was a cunt!) :)

My aunty Eilee. I'm sort of named for her in an Anglicised way. Stayed with her every summer in Cork and honestly can't believe she's gone. She was the last left. Every other cunto in Ireland fucked off to America. I'm going to have to stay with the gypsy ****** we don't talk about when I go over now. 

 

Eternal rest and perpetual light shine upon you Eilie. May you rest in peace.

Sorry for your loss Bou. Earlier this week a Neighbour of mine died suddenly she was 44 and had 5 kids, the youngest aged 4, apparently she was making them their tea and she collapsed and died of a heart attack in front of the 4 year old, they have told him she has died but just keeps saying’ Mummy’s died but she will be coming back soon.’ Not especially close to her but feel sorry for her kids especially the youngest apparently she knew she had a heart condition and could of had surgery but chose not to and was advised not to have her youngest due to her condition.

That's awful Fergie, something similar happened to an acquaintance of mine some time ago. It's horrible.
