Back In My Day Meme | BACK IN MY DAY WE LAUGHED IN DEATHS FACE THEN KICKED HIM IN THE NUTS AND STOLE HIS WOMAN | image tagged in memes,back in my day | made w/ Imgflip meme maker
Damn brotha can't be easy, I lost both of my Grandfathers when I was young so I didn't get to know them as an adult. Feel for ya, I'm really not good at knowing what to say during these times but you're a cool cat and I had to at least say something.

Truly! He was in the army in the korean war, so he asked if I would bring him a care package "one of the ones with viagra in it". He made the staff at the home give him one of the fancy whirlpool baths this morning because "I want to go out in style".

What the hell is wrong with you? What do you hope to get out of making a comment like that to someone who's losing a member of their family and a huge part of their life? I don't care if you personally disagree with something the man did, this isn't the place. I hope that when you find yourself in a similar situation that you don't have to deal with anyone like yourself.

I'm even more surprised that comment has upvotes... WTF? Who would upvote that stupidity? Needs to be DV into oblivion.. and I'm not a dv user.. even on trolls. But that comment needs to go.

your comment... "The Christian Community"... I built on that with Pulls together to bring uplifting "supportive" comments to someone experiencing difficulty. Your comments, (however intended) seem inappropriate on a thread where a very respected user is losing a family member. If you were unaware how your comments are coming across,.. I think other comments have expressed a similar disproval. Your comments are in the least,.. distaseful to a grieving user.. and appear inflammatory,.. and trolling. If that was not your intention,.. reallyitsjohn has given you sound advice. Users will remember your comments,... the IMGflip community, (for the most part) is a big family. Family shows respect and comfort in challenging and stressful times. I hope you reconsider your comments to Wizard. There are other threads here where you can vent your political opinions,... this one is very inappropriate to do so.

While I don't always approve of war, I do always honor the men and women who put their necks on the line in the name of Liberty. I do approve of the Korean War, don't believe it was genicide, and I do believe it was done to eradicate tyranny over an oppressed nation. Hats of to anyone who balls-up and does what needs to be done. Hats off to the vets of our country.

Don't try to explain anything to me, you owe an apology to Wizard for your ill-timed self-serving grandstanding statement. All you have done, just like Westboro, is assure that you are never taken seriously again by those that saw your statement.

Serving his country makes him a legend. WW2 and Korean War vets are the titans of this century.

I feel you on that one. My grandmother (his wife actually), suffered a brain aneurysm a few years ago and died almost instantly, and I never got to see her.

He held on a few days longer than we expected. The military had sent me to TX for a few days, then I had to work out of town, but I saw him yesterday evening which was my first opportunity (kinda late, I was the only one there by then). He was pretty much in a coma but I talked to him for a while. I had hoped that he could talk back but he did not. I sat with him for a while, and when I got up to leave, he squeezed my hand. My dad called this morning and told me that he had finally passed shortly after I left. A week ago when I had seen him and he could still talk, he told me privately that was how he wanted to go.

Dude. I'm really sorry for you. Now, I'm not religious or anything, but I really do hope sometimes that I'm wrong and we'll get to see our loved ones again. I'll never be sure, but I hope he's satisfied and had a good life, being a former veteran and all.

Wizard...prayers for you, your grandfather, and your family. It's never easy at a time like this, but he's trying to make it easier on y'all I'm sure. Leaving some good memories to boot.

Regarding your sense of humor, that translates well to your occupation. When things are the darkest and shittiest, if you can laugh and make those around you laugh they'll follow you to hell and back!

They are a special breed, that lot. My Dad just turned 81. He's a Marine Veteran of Korea and Viet Nam. He's the same way. His sense of humor has always gotten the family through our toughest times.

I have to admit...I was kinda stunned when I saw this meme. Of course I upvoted it. Peace and strength to you and your family. Something that always takes some of the sting out of loved ones lost: Celebrate their life! He would want you to tell stories about him; jokes he told, crazy shit he did....

I think he'd really appreciate it. That's "going out in style", if there ever was.
