The worst day  
So here marks the final post of my fathers health.

My father was a complicated man, a creative man, a good father, a bad father and a good man with many weaknesses.

My mom was woken up this morning by the hospital telling us dad had to be put on a ventilator this morning. We didnt fully grasp how bad the day was going to get, we assumed while this was very bad that we would have more time to work stuff out. We started getting ready to run some errands before we planned to head back to the hospital. But then we got a call from the hospital saying they were not sure if dad would live for more then an hour. So we rushed to get a cab and it took forever to get there, there was major trafic so it was about 20-30 mins by car. I had been texting and calling people to let the inner circle know what was happening. And Graham and Adam met us at the hospital, we ended up being there for over 4 hrs before he finally passed away. We talked to him for awhile unsure if he could hear us from his state of sediation but we tried any way in hopes he could.
It was so sudden I am still processing it I guess. 2011 can go suck it.

I'm so sorry for your loss. I'm glad that you and your mother were able to get there in time before his last moments. I just recently lost my father last week and I do understand how it takes time to absorb it all. My condolences to your family and hope your family stays strong.

A day ago I was thinking how I hadn't seen any posts from you in a while. Life sure is ...unexpected. I hope that you'll be surrounded with all the strength and support you need to help you get through the chaos. My condolences and keep on keepin' on.

I appreciate it, of course I committed to tabling at mocca this year so I have to keep comicing no matter what. I imagine my old man would agree.

I keep thinking how glad I am that we had the chance to meet him. He was very welcoming to us, and it was wonderful to engage him about the things he'd done and loved. Complicated, yes, but your dad too. My thoughts are with you and your mom.

These sudden losses really seem to leave the biggest void. I'm sorry you have to go through this sort of trial. Best wishes to you and your family. What a harsh way to start the year.

Oh, Stevie, I'm so, so sorry. If there's anything we can do for you and your family, please let us know. And I hate repeating myself from yesterday, but really, our thoughts are with all of you.

Thanks hon, I know you know how it is. I just wish he had not passed so quickly. But I am going to use that big album you gave to collect the stories people are sending me about my dad.
