    The festive season was all good until a sudden change yesterday.....
    Unfortunately my dad passed away last night with cancer.
    Sat by his side & got to say goodbye in person & he faded away later in his sleep without sufferance, helping ease the pain a little.
    Yes he was a Seaeagles supporter who I converted back in 1986 giving him many joyous celebrations , high fiving many moments from the Cliffy Lyons days through to the magic moments of today including many Manly GF wins with me.
    As an avid Silvertails from back in the 1 eyed eagle days, comfortable in sharing this with the crazy, kickass fellow Seaeagle supporters on here.
    Will join the fun by seasons kickoff & wish ALL the best till then.
    Matty K, Maxta, MK Eagle

    Sorry to hear of your loss MK. :(

    My condolences to both you and your family.

    I know what you are going through as I lost my father to a heart attack in his sleep the day before Father's Day in 2009.

    Our collective thoughts are with you at this sad time MKE :angel:

    My best friend also was taken in August by a horrible cancer. It is such a painfull and dehumanising disease :(

    Celebrating the joyous memories we shared with these amazing individuals is the best way to honour them, and ultimately our lives.

    Tough time of year to lose a close relative. At least you were there with him and you can rest easy that you helped him see the light.

    Terrible and sad news MKE, condolences to you and your family.

    Lost my father suddenly to complications from cancer just before Xmas two years ago and did not get the opportunity to say my piece with him, which haunts me.

    Be strong mate.

    Very sorry to hear of your Dad's passing MK Eagle.
    We had the funeral for my uncle yesterday.
    Whilst it was obviously a very sad day, it was also a great opportunity to catch up with family & friends and remember the good times.
    Condolences to you and your family Matty.

    MK, may your Dad RIP. You were with your Dad when he needed you at the end. That would have meant so much to him.
    No words can console losing a Dad though. Thoughts with you and family.

    That is terribly sad news, but it's beautiful you actually got the chance to say goodbye, and I'm sure it's a memory you'll treasure of him always.

    Rest in Peace.

    Sorry to hear of your loss MK condolances to you and your family. Lost my Dad suddenly on the night we beat the Cowboys in the 2007 Prelim final. Thought it was a phone call about the game and it was the hospital.
