I wrote on his wife’s (Melissa) FB page on Sunday to wish her a happy Mother’s Day and to see all the pics of his kids behind (they both look exactly like him) and their old wedding pics.... I had to take take several deep breaths. A real loss.

They all look happy tho and I hope they’re doing well

Hakeem’s boy, Liam, just turned 12 and I loved reading this message from Melissa:


Quote:
Happy 12th Birthday to my amazing son. He is the smartest person I know, he is sarcastic, he has a dry since of humor, he is so stubborn, he is the sweetest, he is literally the most manerly person I've ever met, he wears his heart on his sleeve and can be brutally honest without realizing but he makes life the most interesting. He may be a lot taller than me but he will always be my little boy.



Sure sounds like someone we used to know :)

Our good friend Hakeem would have been 40 today. I would have liked to have been able to bust his balls about that a bit.

Miss you buddy. We all do.

His wife, Melissa, posted:

Quote:
There are no words to describe what it feels like to look into your children's eyes and see the sadness, grief, pain and loneliness over losing a parent. They do amazing and are such strong kids, but the waves of grief never leave our home. It comes back with every occasion, every memory that comes to the surface and it can hit with no notice at all.
Today is understandably a hard one. Matt would be celebrating his 40th birthday and although he wasn't a person to make a big deal out of that, the kids know we would have celebrated regardless.
We will still celebrate Matt's 40th birthday today and know he is still a part of everything we do.
Happy Heavenly Birthday to Matt. He is missed every day.


I sent her our love on behalf of Hakeem’s online friends.

Thanks for the updates Barney. I still think of Hakeem and everyone here whenever I miss playing Duels (which is most days).

Hakeem’s daughter, Leah, wrote to Santa this year. All Leah asked for in her letter this year was for Santa to tell daddy in heaven how much she loves and misses him.

Santa wrote back. “Don’t worry your dad already knows how much you love him. Hope you have a great Christmas”

I’m not crying, you’re crying

Hakeem’s widowed wife got remarried yesterday. I’m really glad she found happiness again for both her and their kids. Her new husband has kids too so lots of camping trips, etc.

Good for her.

No matter what happens in life, it moves on. Remember and learn from the past, but never be beholden to it. May this man and his kiddos help bring Hakeem's family some better peace and happiness today and in the future.

Barney, thanks for the updates. You should join the Discord.
