Hey guys - I just wanted to put this out there. My father just died this morning and you all are some of the best friends I've got.

Be strong for the family members around you.

One of the toughest moments in my life as I recall years ago as well.

Nobody can even remotely understand the thoughts that come to mind.

I am very sorry, Darth.

I'm very sorry to hear this, DM. RIP.

A few years ago I realized that I wouldn't have a dad around forever, and ever since then I always make sure to watch every Skins game with him at his house.

Stay strong, brother. The rest of your family will need you now, too.

Sorry to hear this DM... My condolences to you and your family. Like they say remember the good times. When my dad passed I kept remembering the first time I beat him at golf... Not because I was so thrilled to beat him, but because HE was.

My sincerest condolences, Matt.

I can't promise that I can relate to what you are going through, but if you just need someone to talk to man, hit me up.

Matt, my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. May the Holy Spirit bring you all comfort during these hard times.

I dread this for me - but such life, it comes to an end. But stay hopeful my friend in the resurrection that Christ has promised.
