I'm 60, and this has fuck-all to do with jabs.
Relatives, friends and relatives of friends die and leave but memories that are only cherished once they are gone.
I didn't know you well, John, until we spent 10 hours on a sailboat together with a couple other shit-heads. Your daughter was right. You couldn't hold your booze and couldn't play poker worth a damn.
I'm going to miss your friendship and your cash. Smooth sailing, my friend.
When are you supposed to remove deceased people from your phone contacts list?
This question has bothered me for a while.
Just keep them.
You'll see their name and remember them. Help your friends outlive their second death as long as possible. If you can.
That's what I've done thus far. <3 <3 <3
"second death" in the Bible refers to burning in the lake of fire for eternity... i don't think you meant that
The First Death is when you actually die. The Second Death is when no one remembers you anymore.
Yeah the idea is separate from the religious idea of it
My brother's been gone for five years. Brain cancer (I blame electromagnetic soup).
He's still in my phone. And I like seeing his name now and then. .
It's amazing how many people don't return calls
That just means the phone is working.
My friend Tony was #4 on my speed dial when he died and he stayed there until smart phones did away with speed dial.
My Grandmother is #1 even tho she's been gone over 20 yrs. She'll always be #1 ❤️
I don't know the answer to that. I have quite a few recently-departeds in my contact list and can't bring myself to delete them <3 <3 <3
Growing up in Florida, most of my neighbors were 60+ growing up. I went to dozens of funerals before I went to my first wedding (my own). It's a way of life, ironically. It still sucks to see them go. Now that I'm getting up there the frequency is increasing.
Children fear death, and that's the way it should be. Older people get used to it.
I'm a very outgoing person, and I'm losing 2 or 3 per year.
What do we do? We keep their memories alive by tossing them under the bus.
There's nothing worse than losing a friend who can't play poker for shit. It's enough to bring a man to tears.
I will use that with his daughter when I try to collect. We will forgive the Vig.
Bet the will included an iou.
As long as the old go before the young. The way nature intended. When kids die it’s a really hard thing to handle.
Hard to imagine that before the capitalist revolution it was so freakin common
Don’t do what my grandpa did and give up. He outlived everyone and hated every minute.
Hey man. Sorry to hear your troubles. Come to the mgtow community where it's all men. May be a good cope for you. There have been good posts about how in the end we all end up alone and no one cares.
I'm 35 been to a lot of funerals. Grandparents, aunts and uncles. Had a childhood friend commit suicide in his 20s. I don't have a huge social circle anymore. I feel like my mom going will be the last big hurt because I'm closest to her. My dad will suck too. I will mourn for others but I've kinda been numb to it.
My dad is a drinker and has had a ton of buddies and he's kinda in the same boat as you. At lot of his friends have died in the last year.
Find the Lord if you haven't man. Thats the only thing that's going to help.
A lot of my heavy-drinker/drug-addict friends have passed away relatively recently, in their 30s/40s/50s. It's been devastating, only one of them was a DUI single-vehicle accident. The rest were surprises (sort of,) sudden liver failure/heart attacks/overdoses/whatever.
Between the necessity of distancing myself from addicts/alcoholics/Tolerant Leftists for my own safety and sanity, and so many of my friends/family "dying suddenly," my social life is pretty much wiped out. (This is why I seem to be here 24/7 + holidays.) I'm very grateful to have our group of Deplorables for moral support <3 <3 <3
Yes indeed. At my moms funeral it was very comforting to think of her in the afterlife and meeting Jesus. I thought to myself at the time that it would have been unbearable if I didn’t believe in God and heaven.
I'm 63 and I reconnected with an old high school buddy a few years ago and it seemed like all the people we hung out with had died in the past few years.
It’s tough. Trying to get my uncle to move closer so I can take care of him, since he’s outlived his friends, and even many of his friends’ kids that were close. Actually trying to buy the house next door and would remodel it to be basically ADA compliant because I firmly believe it is the younger generation’s responsibility to take care of the family elders.
I’m in my forties and have already buried 20% of my friends (the other 80% are pretty fucking squirrelly if you ask me).
God bless you
Rebuilding families first
Freedom means responsibility
Condolences. Remember him well. It's the best thing we can do. ❤️
I turned 70 this month. I've lost four of my old friends in the last year and a half, one in his mid-50s. This is normal. Glad I'm on this side of the grass.
My Grandad used to drive me around and we'd pass a lot of houses. He'd comment "he died," "he's dead," as we went by where his friends used to live. He had a surprising amount.
My grandmother likes to watch old tv shows and inform us about what cast members are now dead. Fun times!
This made me chuckle. My very old mom has databases of useless info like that in her head.
it certainly puts a perspective on things, especially when you hit that moment where you realize you’re not invincible and everybody has to die, including yourself, eventually. the only thing you can do is pass on your talents and wisdom to your children
that is a shame but i assume thats a part of the music business lifestyle and culture, i think regardless even if you are famous or have “fans”, as you get older the core people who really know you start dying off and that leaves you with a huge irreplaceable hole that won’t ever be filled again, it’s kind of like a part of you dies after every close friend or family dies until you are eventually gone, growing old sucks
Sorry Ned Tugent
As I grow older I find that a ouija board is more effective for contacting old friends than facebook.
For the one with cancer, check out this website:
I'm not a Doc but the results speak for themselves, as do the motivations to suppress the information.
I'm around that age. My friends started dying off about 15 years ago, but the past 2-3 years have been outright carnage in term of losing close friends/family. Most of them were not due to the planDemic, unless factoring in the state of inattentive "healthcare" average people with average illnesses/conditions had to deal with.
> During the planDemic (but not due to the WuFlu,) I lost my last Grandma, a parent, several of my closest friends, and my most important long-time business associate. My already-dark sense of humor has taken a beating, and is likely permanently damaged <3 <3 <3
I'm 30 and most of my family & a lot of my friends are dead. I've been to 2 weddings but 20+ funerals, one of the weddings was my cousin's who contracted terminal cancer 3 mos after her wedding, died 3 months after that, her brother (my other cousin) hung himself 6 months after that. I find it helpful to cherish what time I did have with them and not dwell on what could have or should have been.
I'm 45 and already tired of burying my friends.
I'm sorry to hear this. Especially that you're sixty years old yourself, you're damn near dead already you old son of a bitch. I'm also sorry about John.
“If you love someone go ahead and tell em, people never get the flowers while they can still smell em”
A Friend, who I haven't spoken to in years, committed suicide in Nov 2021, but I only found out about it from another friend a couple weeks ago.
Hit me kinda hard; He was always a laughy-type of guy. He had a tough life, but I always figured he'd be out there up to no good. He'd gained some weight and was starting to go grey like me.
Didn't realize how isolated and depressed he was. Hung himself. Had a kid, girlfriend and dog.. I stopped in to give his mom a hug after I found out. They live in a trailer park and life is hard. Probably harder now.
Many times over the years I'd driven past a place where we'd had some fun and I wondered 'Wonder what he's up to'...
in retrospect he was already dead half the times I thought about him in the last two years. The Vax didn't get him, but the Covid Lockdowns may as well have.
The SMokers' PAradox served me quite well.
Never caught Covid. Never got the vaccine.
As Healthy as I was 3 years ago.
It's going to be Rich hearing people tell me to stop smoking when 5,000,000,000 people are dead from an experimental vaccine pushed by the same experts who convinced you smoking was a death sentence.
I don't know a single smoker who has died WHILE smoking. I know quite a few people who died of 'smoking related' illnesses, but not until after they'd quit smoking.
If I end up Terminal, that's bad news for Globohomo.
I don't intend to live to the ripe old age of 98 doing fuck all about [current issues]..
I'm 36.. If I'm dead before 40 it's because it was meant to be. One way or another.
Cousin went in for chest issues. Docs said he was on verge of massive heart attack. When he was discharged they told him smoking is the buggiest risk factor he was partaking in. It wasn't the daily alcohol.
It was the cigarettes, they also said the lunch meat sandwiches for lunch weren't great either.
My sympathies for this loss and all those you have lost, pede.
In my early 20s late teens I had a friend that told me in a conversation about death at the time really didn’t have a lot of people that I lost in my life. He told me just wait all the sudden in your 20-30s they will just start dropping. My god he was right it’s like every couple months another person I once knew. I didn’t understand and still don’t the hardest was losing my father 3-4 months before covid I thank god I got to see him one last time and spend the time we did in hospital. I would have lost it if I couldn’t see him even tho he was already gone. I’m glad I got to say some sorta goodbye to him.
When my dad was in his nineties, he told me he didn’t have any friends because they had all died. I told him how sorry I was about that. I suggested he get new friends who were younger and would outlast him. He decided to become better acquainted with his neighbors, who were all younger than he was. Life improved for everybody, and they all went to his funeral.
I was so proud of him. Now I’m in my seventies and facing the same thing.
