Sad news MK, my thoughts and condolences are with you. It's never easy losing a loved one, especially a parent (i've lost both, and also way too many family members...) but it does get easier, it takes a while but it does... and all it starts with is a little chuckle at a good memory of them...

kilb - that was really low man, you talk about guilt?? right now you it should be YOU feeling the guilt - and also shame :evil:

Awful news fella.

After finally having the pleasure of meeting you at R3play, I know you must be fairly cut up about this.

That's quite shocking to hear. I met you briefly on the Saturday, and you seemed high spirited, but obviously we now know you were going through something else. That's just very sad.

As somebody who knows MK in real life better than most on this forum (or at least I'd like to think so), I know bits & bobs behind it - admittedly not much - but yeah. STFU.

Sorry to hear that mate, know you told me on Saturday. Didn't get much time to speak to you at the event, but keep strong (I know you will!), you have a great supportive friends around you (I should know, I am one :lol: ) & see you next weekend.

Sorry to hear this sir.
I have a similar relationship with my mother, its natural not to see someone you don't completely blend and agree with but nobody deserves to lose someone under these circumstances.
Glad you had a good time at r3play as that takes strength to put it behind you to still enjoy yourself.

R.I.P and I think ill take your word and call the rents.

So sorry to hear about that.

*hug*

In the meantime though:

Do you know the full story? Do you know the story at all? Families fall out all the time, and for whatever reason to call MK out on this at a time like this is utterly, utterly low. You're a prime example of a keyboard warrior, hiding behind your screen to protect yourself from any comebacks. You're a troll, a coward and that was completely inappropriate, especially so soon after, before MK has even had chance to grieve properly or make up some time in the future. Don't patronise me by telling me you've never done anything you regret. Have some bloody sympathy you utter, utter moron.

And yes - I WOULD say that to your face. I doubt for one moment you would have looked MK in the eye and said that.

:x

Edit: Is there any way you can block people on here? I don't think I want to read anything by Kilb any more.

Sorry to hear that, I'm not sure if you spoke to anybody about it over the weekend but I'm sure there'd have been plenty of us willing to help you out if you needed it.

If you found out before R3PLAY you kept you feelings close to your chest as you didn't show it & its shows courage.

F*ck, that's dreadful news and just makes your efforts at R3PLAY all the more laudable. I think most of us already know you're an extraordinary guy but this just highlights that fact all the more. Condolences on your loss... :(
