The Mausoleum - A memorial to loved ones lost

Postby The Kingpin » Fri Apr 08, 2011 8:08 am

I've decided that this topic is a valuable addition to the site. To allow us to give our respect to loved ones lost. They deserve more than just a brief post in the random topic.

The purpose of this topic is to make a spot on site to pay your respects to loved ones lost, and to offer condolences to friends who have lost someone. Off-topic posts will not be tolerated, as you can imagine, nor will any form of disrespect towards the people involved. If you wish to attach a verse or two from the book of your respective religion, feel free.

Earlier this morning, my cousin Abdulla passed away as a result of a complication of surgery, a bloodclot having gone through his bloodstream, reaching his heart.

He was a good hearted person, barely a couple of years older than myself. Loved by everyone who knew him. His passing came as a shock to everyone, related or otherwise.

My condolences to those who did not know him, for never experiencing the beauty of his personality, and to those who did, for the loss of such a kind hearted, loving, compassionate man. he will be sorely missed.

I'm so sorry KP....truly, I am.

I see death all the time - hell, I live next to a graveyard - but I know how much it hurts to lose family. A while back, when I was still a young kid, my grandfather on my mom's side lost his second wife (my mom's mom died when she was young - car accident) to cancer. We were all close to her. But, I don't think my grandfather ever really recovered from losing her...

I sympathize greatly, Kingpin. I have lost many to the tides of time, but perhaps the most painful (and least expected) was the death of my Uncle steve, claimed when his liver no longer could function properly. Kind heart, and my inspiration to become an artist- a man who shall be held close to me for all my life.

My own sympathies to the death of your cousion... WHen one dies within one's family,the pain that is felt within said family... is very strong and moving. I wish I could have said that with better words, but right now, there are tears streaming down my eyes, from me remembering the death of my Grandma... 5 years have passed since then... and yet... I still...miss her...

Thank you for your kind words, everyone. For those of you religiously inclined, I ask for a prayer for his relatives. The next few months will be especially difficult for them. They'd be touched to know that people far from his acquaintence and reach are offering their condolences for his passing. For that, I thank you...

Sorry to hear of your loss KP. After watching someone gradually get the life sucked out of them, I can understand. I also knew the day said person would die, which is just eerie because my mom had a cold and didn't want to visit him in the nursing home, figuring she could go the next day. I genuinely knew he'd die that night and wouldn't be there the next day. How? I couldn't say. Although some people may have found that comforting.. it was really the exact opposite. Never had that feeling before, never reacted that way before. I puzzled myself for a moment that night.

I have a certain level of guilt for not outright saying "He's going to die tonight" and having her go, however. I figured I was wrong and being neurotic yet hadn't seen him myself in several months.

hope everyone is alright from this.

thank you, PC. I'm sorry for yours as well. And I know the feeling. I remember feeling something had happened to my Grandfather, who lives thousands of kilometres away, in the United Kingdom, while I was asleep. I told my mum to call home the following morning, and sure enough, he'd had a minor stroke in the night. the same time I had felt something was wrong. I may very well have been the first to know, despite the distance...

It is... a painful thing to lose someone you love. There is nothing worse than hearing someone died, and being unable to do anything about it. It makes you feel useless.... and fills you with regret.

I'd know from experience.

On April, Friday the 13th, my cat Sinergy died from old age. He was 14 years old. He was the best cat someone could ever have- this cat would actually paw at your back if you sat on the floor like he was trying to pet you, and he would bat at my keyboard as if he were trying to play it. It was hard to get over: in fact, I joined RPGtopia in order to get over the loss of my cat.

RIP Natasha. Also known as Minny Moo. Last of the Tyrannotitan ferrets.

Died a little inside today. Not the best feeling.

Some people, you just think of as immortal. Immortal, not in flesh, but because they will be remembered for lifetimes to come. The stories of true legends - the people that stand out by doing what everyone else has said is impossible - will be told again and again, and so they never truly leave us.

Such a man has died today.

Rest in peace, Neil Armstrong.


It's also worth mentioning that Jerry Nelson, the man who provided the voice of Sesame Street's one and only vampire, The Count, has passed on this week.

I think we can all agree they'll both be sorely missed.

Wow. It is pretty shocking to see him go.

RIP to both.
You're right though. Their legacies will carry them to immortality, in that sense of the word.

Those two men have helped define the world... one for space travel, the other for countless children...

As a memoir to Jerry Nelson...
