So Here's This Unbelievably Sad And Disturbing Skit That Kid Kraddick Did Last Week

Guys, this is hard. Just know right now that this story is tragic and strange and painful, all right? Because what happened is that Kidd Kraddick, that incredibly beloved radio personality that passed away unexpectedly yesterday during a charity golf tournament, did a skit on Monday, just five days before his death, detailing what he would say to his loved ones on his deathbed. 

The video, titled "Deathbed Confessions - Kidd's Final Words," was posted on his website, but it's been made private. Here are some of the awful, heartbreaking things that he said:

"Hi guys … I'm not doing that good right now. So nice of all of you to be here. … Shannon, we've been friends for 15 years. You were just a teenage girl loaded up on antidepressants when I met you. Thank you for not killing me sooner … 
Jenna, I'm gonna miss your sideboob. Wherever I'm going, I hope it joins me there someday. Never forget the day we first met at the Cherokee reservation … 
J.C. I love your spirit, man. I love your positive attitude, playfulness, hot-a-- wife .. You've been like a brother to me and that's why it's hard to tell you this … I'm actually your other bio dad. 
I'm getting weaker. … Touch my hand. … I love you deeply and unconditionally. … I love you." 
[And he's gone -- Sarah McLachlan's 'Angel' plays] 

How bizarre is it that they did this skit? How hard must it be to be one of those people mentioned, or one of his loved ones, or even just someone who appreciated all he did, and to hear this?

RIP, Kidd. Man, what a sad, sad turn of events.

It's actually not that uncommon. I think our spirits let us know weeks, sometimes days before our bodies let go!

This is amazing to me that he got to say his goodbyes! :)

You are taking it out of context, he was playing with the cast as he always did, you would knew it if you listened to his show. Pay attention and get the right info before you post. It's a shame that he is gone but it's worse that you are trying to show him as a bad guy when he wasn't.

I don't see where the poster below about the skit was making KIDD out to be a bad guy. I do think it was just a skit. They have done similar things before. It's ominous but innocently so. I hope that they gang mentioned in there can take comfort in that even though it was a skit, I am sure he meant every word of it.

I'm confused about the tone of this write up regarding Kidd's deathbed confessions. It sounds like you do not listen to this show at all! What I just read was funny, because in my head I can hear Kidd's voice saying these things to his morning morning show friends.. If you listened to his show you would know that he was a comedian and the things he said are filled with inside jokes that only his listeners ( family) would know. Don't demonize Kidd or write things about him in a negative light. He was an amazing man. It's a shame he is gone, not only because all his listeners won't be able to laugh at any future jokes he was planning on telling, but because many sick children will not be able to benefit from his kindness and selflessness.

Wow!!! So sad to hear of this skit. I live in Dallas, and people here are stunned! I have heard throught the grapevine he had an anyerism, but we'll see. This is not the first time I have heard of people saying or doing things and passing right after. He must have been an Angel here for a short time to bless us all with his presence! God Bless him!

I listened to the show for years before they pulled it from my area. He was such a giving, sweet hardworking man. He did skits like this ALL the time.
