"The last conversation I had with my dad was about the suite he was going to wear to my wedding in a few weeks." Fuck man, that's just heartbreaking. I dread the day this will happen to me. I'm sorry for your loss.

When i first saw the title of this thread I was thinking 'FINALLY'!

I didn't expect to be heartbroken :/ Stay strong 'tricky'! I'm sure Mr. Klepek is very proud of the man you have become.

I'm getting more saddened by this news as it sinks in. It's really striking that Patrick is not much older than me. "Cherish the moments you have" is right, Pat. We all could do more of that.

Rest in peace, Mr. Klepek, knowing your son is a duder and a gentleman.

Being able to show gratitude and appreciation of the way things ended for your dad shows just what a class act you are, Patrick. Your father was lucky to have had you, and your beyonce (sorry, blame Ryan for that one) will be lucky to have you. Stay strong, and stick with fam. The scoops can wait.

#88 Posted by Demoskinos (14824 posts) -

Hey, mods. Can we get a sticky here so Patrick sees this? I think it would be a good idea.
