Casey Kasem Finally Allowed To Die (1932 – 2014)
While Casey Kasem’s been tossed around like a goddamn rag doll between his wife and kids, what a lot of people probably don’t know is he had an exact medical directive to put him out of his misery if he ever became said rag doll. Via TMZ:
Casey’s kids tell TMZ … their dad’s health directive document states, “If the extension of my life would result in mere biological existence, devoid of cognitive function, with no reasonable hope for normal functioning, then I do not desire any form of life-sustaining procedures, including nutrition and hydration.”
And so last week, Casey’s kids were finally able to fulfill their father’s wishes because it should be every child’s duty to Old Yeller their parents, but sadly, we’ve gotten away from that as a country. I blame McDonald’s. People reports:
“Early this Father’s Day morning, our dad Casey Kasem passed away surrounded by family and friends,” Kerri Kasem wrote. “Even though we know he is in a better place and no longer suffering, we are heartbroken. Thank you for all your love, support and prayers. The world will miss Casey Kasem, an incredible talent and humanitarian; we will miss our Dad. With love, Kerri, Mike and Julie.”
And so rests Casey Kasem, the iconic voice of American Top 40, Shaggy from Scooby Doo, and Robin whenever Batman and Robin would show up making me lose my five-year-old shit. He also married a woman with really big tits who turned out to be an absolute meat-throwing nightmare that hid him from his kids which he’d probably do all over again because this is why God puts on Earth.
