I've never been affected at all by people around me dying, but I've also never had anyone this close die. So now I'll learn how I deal with death.
All of the relatives are posting messages on Facebook saying "prayers coming in from here" and "more prayers coming from here." I know I shouldn't be insulted by this. He was a Christian and probably would be grateful for these (if he weren't unconscious and all), but it all just seems so silly, like they aren't taking it… Continue

He collapsed at work. Probably a heart attack of some kind. I'll post again when I have more presence of mind to do so. That's all.

I'm not 100% sure how to start this so I am just going to say that my father died from a motorcycle crash July 29, 1997; two days before my 12th birthday. He was not religious; I suppose I'd describe him as agnostic. He wasn't concerned with the afterlife but moreso with the now; his children in general. He was an absolute great father.

I called him in his hospital room. He sounded very weak and soft-spoken. We didn't talk long. I think he knew who I was, because he asked me if the boys ate. It was an odd question, but it was coherent. He dropped the phone, and the nurse took it. She told me that he just sleeps a lot anymore. It breaks my heart every time I call. I want my daddy back. Like he was before.

Atheism and Christmas: Should Atheists Ignore Christmas or Celebrate It?
This was a good read. It's inspired me to write about my own personal experience with this. I've been struggling with this a lot in the past 4-5 years.
My family is religious, but not overly so. Methodism is one of most liberal denominations of… Continue
