My dear Khash...May you rest in peace...
I just got off the phone with Mary Ellen, Khash's mom...

He is dead.

His dad found his body on June 29th...

They hadn't been able to reach him for several days and normally they're in touch quite a lot...

So his dad went into his apartment, and he was lying on the floor...

They don't know how he died yet, as they are waiting for the autopsy report...

His mom told me to tell all of you who knew him and who love him that she would be glad to talk to you...

Just PM me and I will give you her cell number...This was her idea.


I cannot believe that I will never hear his voice again..

Or hear his infinite wisdom...

I am crying for my terrible loss...

He always encouraged me in my poetry and in any situation that I found myself in...

My dear friend is dead. And there is no help for it.


At least his pain, his suffering is over, and I thank god for that.

Come, let us grieve together...

Ciao, bello...

I will always love you, baby...

I didn't know him. I read his posts and always thought he sounded like such a cool person and someone I'd like to know.

How incredibly sad.

Yes, we were very close...

It's really horrifying for his parents...

Both of their children have died...

His sister died years ago from some sort of cancer...

Thank you for your very kind wishes...

I have a huge hole in my heart.

365. It's just not the natural order of things for a
parent to bury one child, let alone two. My mom buried two of her kids within a ten month span (my brother Jeff died in July 2001 and my brother Rob died May 2002)

44. Safe passage, friend.
Might you be free from suffering now. A candle will be burning.



And here's something he would have liked. Only live performance I could find, and this is what his username was based on. Might it give him a smile:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YXAeN5ERogk

Kashka from Baghdad
Lives in sin, they say,
With another man,
But no one knows who.

Old friends never call there.
Some wonder if life's
Inside at all--
If there's life inside at all.

But we know the lady who rents the room.
She catches them calling a la lune.

At night
They're seen
Laughing,
Loving.
They know
The way
To be
Happy.

They never go for walks.
Maybe it's because
The moon's not bright enough.
There's light in love, you see.

I watch their shadows,
Tall and slim,
In the window opposite.
I long to be with them.

'Cause when all the alley-cats come out,
You can hear music from Kashka's house.

At night
They're seen
Laughing,
Loving.
They know
The way
To be
Happy.

"Watching every night.*
Don't you know they're seen?
Won't you let me laugh?
Let me in your love.

"Watching every night.
Don't you know they're seen?
Won't you let me laugh?
Let me in your love.

"Watching every night.
Don't you know they're seen?
Won't you let me laugh?
Let me in your love.

"Watching every night.
Don't you know they're seen?
Won't you let me laugh?"

He was one of a kind...

I just realized that I still have his voicemail on my cell from August 2006...

He called to see how things were going...

I've managed to keep it all this time...

It's the only recording of him that I have, and now it's really a treasure...

95. My dear kedrys...
He had a DU account on his mom's computer...

I'm going to talk her through finding it...

And then she and her husband can read this thread...

Thank you so much for your condolences, sweetie...

It means a lot...

75. Thank you for confirming that it wasn't suicide.
I know that he was a person who felt things very deeply and strongly. I also wondered if it was his emotional pain that caused his death. How old was he, Peggy? I got the impression that he was in his 40s or early 50s at most. What a tragedy. :(

78. He did feel things very strongly...
We talked on the phone from time to time, and he always had such profound insights into human behavior...

As to his death, I'm not sure, really...

He did have poor balance and he could have just tripped and hit his head...I don't know.

Hopefully the autopsy will tell us.

He was the same age as my oldest daughter...

Born in October, 1966...

So, he was 41 years old...

Way too young...

A dear friend of mine died unexpectedly at 41 a few years ago. It's a terrible shock. He was younger than me.

I always tell the people I love that I love them...because it is as you say...

You never know when you might not be able to....or they might not be able to hear you...

I thank god, I did tell him I loved him that last phone call...

We always ended our conversations like this:

K: Ciao, bella

Me: Ciao, bello

K: I love you, baby

Me: I love you too...

We always did that!

Thank you, sweetie...those are wonderful sentiments...

113. He did have a chronic illness...
He had a pretty bad case of MS...

It caused him a lot of pain, all the time...

He didn't talk about it much, but now and then he would...

And about how difficult it was to get relief from the pain...

That's why I say he's at peace, sweetie...

Because now he is.

That's the only good thing about his death...

No need to thank me. The stigma one faces is great and he understood that. The victim becomes the criminal and it's wrong. Just as he told me when people would say, thank goodness it wasn't... well, you get my point.

Edited on Tue Jul-15-08 06:24 PM by socialdemocrat1981
This is a tragic loss to the DU community and I know that he will be missed by many on here and IRL. He touched the hearts and minds of those who got to know him and he contributed a unique perspective on life and issues to DU that enriched our community. I did not know him very well but I know that he changed the lives of many through his presence here and his passing will leave a great void

My sincere and heartfelt thoughts, prayers, deepest sympathies and condolences go out to Khaska's family and friends. The loss of a child is something no parent should have to endure and my heart aches for his parents. I will keep them in my thoughts and prayers, as I will all his family and relatives.

RIP Khashka. May you find peace, love, joy and happiness in the next life

And my deepest and sincerest thoughts, prayers, condolences and sympathies to you as well Peggy. It was clearly evident how much you loved him through your posts here

Khash and I have been very close friends for several years now, and his death leaves a huge hole in my heart...

He always supported me in times of trouble and personal turmoil, and now that support is gone...

He loved my poetry too...

Oh god.

214. We always seem to lose the good ones way too early.
And khash was no exception.

He and I bantered a couple times, and he was always a class act.

RIP buddy.

Peggy - :hug: :hug: :hug:

You are in my thoughts, sweetie.

I am at a loss for words.

....


..

On edit:

I want everyone to know what an amazing gift to me Khash was.

When my husband got extremely sick ( he has a failing liver ) Khash Pm'ed me and I called him. It was an extremely sweet thing to do considering I had never met him. He helped me with his words. Later, I sent him a friendship necklace of beads that I handmade for him as a kind of "thank you". He called me and thanked me profusely. This was long ago.

I will miss you Khash, may your soul and health be at rest... I am going to miss you so.

By a departing light
we see acuter, quite,
than by a wick that stays.
There's something in the flight
that clarifies the sight
and decks the rays.


What else can I say?

Va bene, Peggy and tutti...

286. sigh
All of us will die , sooner than later , everyone last one of us . But it is indeed very hard on the ones that follow for they terribly miss him , miss her , and no place other than memory does their scent remain. This is the hardest thing to face and digest there is.

I won't lie and pretend that I knew khash closely , or claim that I am saddened more that the sadness that lands on me upon hearing about the passing of a stranger. But that it affects you that saddens me more than the daily existential angst. Take care of yourself.

I am sure that whatever state Kash is in right now it is much more peaceful and beautiful than this veil of tears , and that is amazing isn't it ? Considering how beautiful this agonizing life of ours is.

RIP Khaska .....

299. From an old Army song I recall...
"In the early morning rain,
another poet died today;
each must go his own way....
In the early morning rain."


I recall I was a Moderator when I read that Kephra had passed away, we received word from his mom, via DU. I got her # and called her, it was true, and I posted that fact.

It was one of the saddest things I had ever done, and have always hoped that no DU'er would ever pass on again. But that is not the way of things, there are some things we cannot control, and rarely understand. This is one of those things.

I like to think of it this way, another soul is having a great meet-up w/our brothers and sisters who have gone before us.

May the power of love and compassion swiftly take the grief from the hearts of those who knew him.

Peace & Love to Kash, who has passed on, and you and the family...

I didn't know him, though I recall reading many of his posts -- but he was obviously well-loved by a lot of people. I'm sorry.

309. Rest in Peace, friend
I only knew you from your DU posts and Peggy's references.

Enough for me to realize that we were political kindred spirits.

If there is Karmic justice, we'll all get together in the
Ultimate DU Meetup. Looking forward to it!

Peggy, you have many shoulders on which to shed tears.

Mine's just one.

:hug:

I don't have the energy to answer all of you now...

But I have read, and will continue to read each and every post...

I just got off the phone with his mom, and I showed her how to access DU from her computer...

She will be reading this thread as she can...

She will also be sending me info on what we can do in his memory...

I will post that when I have it...


Thank you all for being here for him...

and make their presence wonderful and at some point they have to go back to paradise where they probably truly belong. I am so sad to hear this. Leaving in summer, leaving behind families and blue skies and love, it makes me so sad. But they are back in utter love and safety, with blue skies and family to love them. that is the only consolation I feel for things like this. Khash can never be harmed or hurt again. I wish peace and hope and love to the family. I am very, very sorry tonight to hear this. Its so shocking and sad.

The Man With the Child In His Eyes by Kate Bush
("He's here! He's here!
He's here! He's here!")

I hear him, before I go to sleep
And focus on the day that's been.
I realise he's there,
When I turn the light off and turn over.

Nobody knows about my man.
They think he's lost on some horizon.
And suddenly I find myself
Listening to a man I've never known before,

Telling me about the sea,
All his love, 'til eternity.

Ooh, he's here again,
The man with the child in his eyes.
Ooh, he's here again,
The man with the child in his eyes.

He's very understanding,
And he's so aware of all my situations.
And when I stay up late,
He's always waiting, but I feel him hesitate.

Oh, I'm so worried about my love.
They say, "No, no, it won't last forever."
And here I am again, my girl,
Wondering what on Earth I'm doing here.
Maybe he doesn't love me.
I just took a trip on my love for him.

Ooh, he's here again,
The man with the child in his eyes.
Ooh, he's here again,
The man with the child in his eyes.

I never actually exchanged posts with Khash, but I recall his posts quite vividly; he stood out among the legion of thousands of DUers whose usernames I've seen in the past 4 years. He NEVER said anything generic or bland; not a word was wasted. It was obvious he was a person of intensity and depth, and I regret not getting to know him more on DU. Rest in peace, brother...

I looked up his profile and see he's a Houston DUer, like myself.

:cry:

editorial comment: Losing a child, at any age, is hell. My big sister died when she was 42, of cancer. I was 35 and always looked up to her. Her death destroyed me and it destroyed my parents.


My dad, who never cussed, told me: Every day I wake up, and then I remember that Karen is dead, and I say, "Shit".


July 12th, it was 18 years ago.

Rest in peace, Khash.

I always enjoyed his posts. If I was perusing through a lot of responses, I always read his responses. I didn't know him, but I got the sense that, if I did, I would have liked him a lot. He was always interesting and always came off as genuinely good person. He seemed like he'd have been a delight to know as a friend.

My sincere condolences to his family and those who knew him. This is very bad news. I'm sorry.
