Have a piece of heaven Karl Roy!

After celebrating my kid's 4th birthday yesterday and being thankful for his health unlike the freak accident he encountered last year on his 3rd birthday, I woke up and was shocked to find out that Karl Roy has passed away.
It was really hard to believe that he is gone... but knowing his health condition, there is a possibility that a heart problem could occur again. He has cheated death years ago by undergoing a heart surgery and now God might have said to Karl that  "your extension in life is long overdue". "It is time to have a piece of heaven". Some may have felt that he has turned his back on us...his fans...the music world...
but he is actually heading another road...and that is the after life...
don't worry because he has left a gift for all of us...and that is his voice...his music...his kindred spirit. He would always be watching over us..."hey karl! not all the time ok?" LOL
He was the voice of three great bands: Advent Call, Kapatid and my personal fave P.O.T. I have watched most of their shows when I was younger, but too bad I did not have pics of those moments...being dazed (or the S word) most of the time. He have given a glimpse of his life through his webcam-almost-daily-pics at Facebook...which was so funny...his transparency made him show who he really is to all kinds of people. Wake up Karl!
All the people I know who have met Karl Roy (may they be real friends or just acquaintances) have nothing bad to say about this person. He talks to everyone, never gets into a fight, always laid back and just basically nice. I am not a rockstar but I got a bad temper and sometimes a not-so-nice attitude...so please Karl, if you can hear me...teach me how to be more like you. 

I really love the song "Piece of This" because it hit me hard and it hit me double hard this time when I watched the video knowing Karl had passed away. I hate crying but the tears just poured down and after that I felt liberated knowing the tears I gave are worth it.

You have done a great job in this world and I wish I can also be remembered for something fruitful. For now, just chill and enjoy heaven...say hello to Annabel and Noel  :)

  3. I never heard of this guy but when I watched the video I felt your pain. His band is really dope! Too bad he died because I think they got the potential to become famous worldwide.
