After seeing invade Jims thread about Sarge it made me remember my grandmother who died last year and all the stories she used to tell me or the crazy things she did that i heard about. This one isnt big, but one time, when she was around 20 a little while after the depression she found a rooster and painted its toenails red and gave it to a couple of her nieces as a present. I just know that sometimes remembering all the good things about someone you have known that passed really helps to feel better.

If your feel like it, post stories here about people you knew personally that you miss just to get it off your chest or that you just feel like sharing.

Grandpa was the ultimate source of military things. Taught me loads and got me interested in this sort of thing. When he passed away his huge book collection was, for lack of a better phrase, up for grabs. I now own hundreds of books on WWI, WWII and the army in general.

Great man.

I'd like to remember my Maths teacher, who had a heart attach and had to drive himself to a hospital. He could barely move so he had to flash his car lights at the staff to get their attention.

He still came to school though afterwards. Just like he did the next after getting a cancer cut out of his head. No idea how he did it. He had over 30 operations in his life, and most of his face was skin grafts, but he was cool.

In remembrance of all our Canadian forces who have died needlessly in Afghanistan. We need this to stop. This war is a joke, we need our soldiers out of there before more of them die.

In rememberence of Scourge who I haven't seen on here in a while (I know he's probably not dead but I still miss his melbourne ass)

In rememberence of my grandfather Lloyd, who was taken by liver cancer, he smoked up to the day he died and it wasn't the thing that killed him. I've got two moments with him that I will remember forever;

1. I was at his place sitting across the table from him in the kitchen while he was reading the paper and everyone else was in the loungeroom and I asked him how he was, he looked at me with the biggest grin on his face and said "Shit, but we can't let anyone think that" and then winked, and I won't remember seeing that look of pain that passed his eyes whenever he moved, like he could feel the cancer ripping him apart.

2. On his deathbed, the thursday before he died, the entire family was there. He was so high on pain and morphine that he couldn't move, my Grandmother was feeding him water through a sippy cup and he could hardly drink it. We were there about an hour and we decided to go, one by one my mother, my brother and I all gave him a hug and said "I love you" and moved away and Lloyd didn't react, so mum and Alex (my brother) went outside and I just stood at the end of the bed and watched. Then my father went to say goodbye, gave him a hug and kissed his cheek and my grandfather, who hadn't said a word the entire time we were there somehow croaked out "I love you" back to him... I will never forget that moment as when I realised the true power of family. Nothing was going to stop him from replying to his son...

This thread is legitimately amazing.

RIP my grandfather. He was a really great guy, he died of a heart attack 2 summers ago. It was really bizarre, it was the day I left to go to a camp for a week, and I was talking on the phone with him the night before, telling him I missed him and that I would try to get my family to go visit after I got back. I got picked up early 3 days later so I could attend the funeral. The worst part was, both his parents outlived him (also, RIP Pop-Pop), and they were there trying to stay composed, it was sad to watch, really.

I'm really sorry to here that...

My grandmother was in pretty much the same situation as that a year ago in a couple weeks...

On her deathbed barely able to move for the last little while...

Cancer is terrible and hell to see someone go though.

When did that happen?

Almost two years ago now. We're almost up to the day as it is. So yeah, really sad time, especially seeing as it was my Grandmothers birthday today... I don't know how she must feel, it's her second birthday alone and I have no idea what to say to her about it.

She's helped me so much with my life (She talked me into seeing a doctor and now a psychologist, I actually need one so it's not like she's just being a bitch, she's acutally helping) and I don't know what to do in return.

Haha, right now, i'm doing horrifically. But I'm still alive, which is enough to keep the parents happy I spose. And Nan does all the cooking so I'll just ask her to bake one, and then eat it and tell her that it tasted of awesome and win.

Freakin creepy having some random dude in the internet do that, but who cares...

Really though, its been pretty tough for me too, but I just try and remember everything good while sitting on the beach listening to Bob Marley... Usually does the trick...

Just go to the "How to not feel like crap thread"...

My threads have odd titles...
