Re: Phil/Jill - any chance of honoring Joseph Kimu

#7316 3 years, 5 months ago
wow i am very shocked by the attitudes of some of you people!

i have personally witnessed someone sober as a judge fall down a set of stairs at SPAC she was very badly injured and was put into a coma so they could deal with the swelling in her brain....according to most of you she was all fucked up on acid or mushrooms and it was all her fault and she made us all look bad!!! what a bunch of shit!!
a spinal tap is the only way to find out if it was acid or mushrooms. lets wait for the tox report before bashing him-- also if it was safety glass (i don't believe it was) then how did he crash through??? and he didn't dive out the window as some of you would suggest! the window was at floor level-so he dove head first into a concrete floor and missed and went out the window???? please people- i don't think this young man did this on purspose- it was a terrible accident!

where is the kindness, where is the love, where is the community that i USED to know???? -i see alot of jerks giving their opinions on post # 1 of their posting history- every one has to have a first post - but something nice is always better than comming on an lecturing or admonishing a group or individual for their thoughts- agree to disagree - no time to Hate!!!
God bless joes family and friends at this horrible time! RIP Joseph!

I think the best thing and the most professional thing for the band to do is to play a song that indirectly remembers him. i.e a He's gone, etc... I don't feel that this is the kind of band to take an aside(did I use that word right lol) and pay tribute to him. Keep it classy the show must go on and not dwell.

Sorry, this was not an accident, he ran and dove through a window according to a guy standing right there. Witnesses said he looked pretty wasted.

Again, what if this guy had killed some other fan(s) with his reckless actions, then what would people think of Joseph???

Sorry to maybe come off as a Jerk, but this young man was very irresponsible and could have put others in danger with his actions...

Look at the guy who jumped at Jones Beach, he was charged with crimes for his irresponsibility, hes very lucky to not be dead himself...

I feel terrible for this persons family and all those that had to witness this tragedy during such a beautiful concert that Furthur was putting on, but again this young mans actions were his own doing...

every one has a different story (even among those right there) some say he said hike some say he didn't say anything! i will wait and see what the final verdict is----neither here nor there --i still say wheres the love?
too many judgemental people automatically drew their own conclusions before we know it all.
and he was a human being and doesn't need to be called names by people who shouldn't be throwing stones.
just sayin....

Isn't it about "honoring" or "remembering" his life, not his death? He was just a young kid at a show, and something happened. To his family and friends he wasn't his death, he was a beautiful being; isn't that worth remembering?

FUCK CANCER!

Peace & Love

I didn't know him (I'm on the west coast) but I remember when he died. There was sadness and anger throughout the community. I don't remember all of the details.
FUCK CANCER!

You know some of you people are just straight fucking ASSHOLES! I knew Joey & he was MY friend. It's so easy 2talk shit on people u don't know because none of you have lost him. HE WASN'T ON DRUGS & HE DiDN'T DRiNK. So for everyone running they're mouth & ASSuming things..u can shut the fuck up & stop now. K? Thanxx. Joe had been thru a lot this past yr. He lost his best friend 5wks ago in a car accident, 3mos ago he lost 2aunts 4days apart & then he finds out the girl he used to be engaged too, has been taken off life support after almost 6mos of struggling. He had been going thru TONS of shit at home w.his parents [one is also very very sick] & he had the opportunity 2go 2this concert. He LOVED Furthur..seriously. All he did was listen to Furthur, never had any other cd's or anything. He was actually thinking about getting a tattoo to honor them. He had all types of shirts & hoodies made w.Furthur on them lol..he even got some of his friends into them as well. When we found out they were coming 2PGH we knew we had 2get him tickets. He was so excited & then everything in his life started going downhill. He was saving money 2get the tickets & everything. One day we went 2 a pizza shop, and uknow how they have the "Donate a dollar to save Sally's life" cups? He took out this paper bag & put it in the jar. All his money he had saved up. He didnt eat anymore, he was just walking around like a zombie. He's a diabetic & wasnt taking care of himself..and anyone who knows anything about Diabetic's, knows that when they're body starts acting up..they can do CRAZY things. A friend & I dragged him 2the dr's where he refused 2talk 2them & tell them anything. He had severe depression & wldnt even get out of bed. We got him the tickets, thinking he wld take this girl that lived a few houses down..but he didnt even care. Not even a smile. His dad tried over & over again 2get him out of bed & help him feel better but nothing worked. The night of the concert he agreed 2go 2the concert w.his dad if we stopped nagging him [we sang jingle bells for 2hrs straight]. I got a call from him a few hrs later & he thanked me & told me he loved me & appreciated everything we've done 4him. But nothing would make him alive again. He said that his soul had died & he was a walking shell. He started talking crazy then..he didnt remember who he was talking 2. I knew he was going into diabetic shock & acting crazy. He hung up on me & next thing I find out I lost one of my best friends. Joey was one of the sweetest ppl ive ever met. I lost 12ppl in the last 2yrs..and every one of them have impacted me. But losing Joey really hurt. He was my sons godfather. So b4 u sit here & talk shit on someone u know NOTHiNG about. Remember that he was someones SON, BROTHER, GODFATHER, UNCLE. Remember that HiS family & friends are MOURNiNG THE LOSS OF A LOVED ONE. Show respect. If this was your father or brother you would feel the same way!
