There will be no "Hub Bids Kid Adieu" for the Kid's son. In fact, it could be said that he will be little missed. Around the 'net, people are doing everything but celebrating his passing, making jokes, and hoping for some sort of karmic justice.
The next one of you that wants to make the joke, I'll invite you to head to the closest cancer ward. See what happens as acute myelogenous leukemia eats away someone's body and try to look them in the eyes. I seldom if ever discuss my cancer, but this mean-spirited attack on someone - deserving or not - denigrates everyone who is fighting this disease.
When they tell you that you have cancer, doctors stop looking you in the eye. People don't know how to deal with you. I had a neighbor that noted I was losing weight and I had to break the news to him - you can imagine how he felt. I don't know how Williams dealt with his disease, but I hope he wasn't alone and that he didn't suffer.
I may not agree with what John Henry decided to do with his father, but really, this is something you would not wish on anyone. Let him rest in peace, wherever that may be.
