We were all shocked to hear the news this weekend that Kidd Kraddick past away.
When Danny walked into our room Saturday morning and told me I thought he was joking. I immediately grabbed my phone & googled.
My heart sank.
It is so crazy that a man can be such a big part of so many lives of people that have never met him! It’s evident by social media & news…that so many people are just devastated by this loss. It also shows us just what an amazing man he was.
I actually met him & the whole Kidd Kraddick crew years and years ago…way before Daynie was born….and I didn’t even know who they were when I met them! I got their autographs just because everyone else was..then ended up throwing it away later. I started listening to them when I started at my current job about 9 years ago when I heard The Mommy Test.
It’s seems so silly that I am so upset by this. But it just goes to show you how we take so much for granted…even the people that are a part of our morning routines and we don’t even realize it.
I know Kidd did so much for so many people.
What I thought about most the whole weekend was Kellie, Big Al, J-Si, Jenna, & Psycho Shannon. My heart ached for them.
And like everyone else my mind whirled around the unknown…will the show go on? What will become of them?
I was so happy to see Kellie post this late last night I reposted it on my IG….
I just felt so much better knowing that Kellie could have that peace in her heart about seeing Kidd in heaven.
WHAT. A. BLESSING.
This morning at 5:30 Daynie & I were on our way to the track & they were playing Friday’s show on the radio…I couldn’t help by tearing up when I heard Kidd’s voice.
I just knew that this whole week they would just play The Best Of to give the staff time to grieve and get things worked out.
I think it is ABSOLUTELY AMAZING that the crew came on at 7am this morning to share their feelings and help the fans through this. What great strength and courage they have! They did a perfect tribute. They told the story, shared their feelings, and made us laugh and cry. It’s so great that they sucked it up and did that for the fans! It’s so awesome that they made it through that show. They really helped the fans. They were the ones closest to him and this was THEIR time to grieve…and they put the fans FIRST. Thank you for that. Just another way that Kidd has impacted lives.
I had to laugh at a comment I read on a local news station’s page…
The commenter said they were channeling Must Be Nice Guy…
“Must be nice to have everyone talking about you Kidd….must be niiice…must be nice to have an entire show dedicated to your memory….must be niiice. Must be nice to be in heaven…must be nice. ”
RIP Kidd Kraddick.
I saw this pic floating around….apparently many people have this idea! LOVE IT.
