        Make t shirts to help his sister get her life started

        • Do it.

          Second this!

    • The Village Idiot

      Very sad.

    • Bob

      I'm a wreck right now. I'm so broken up over the loss of such a brave soul and a beautiful individual. You and your family will be in my prayers tonight. God bless you. I won't forget you.

      • Rich

        Chive, I think we need a daveonwheels t-shirt. And not a small quantity for someone who affected so many people so profoundly. We need a lot.

        • Derek

          I was thinking the same thing. Proceeds could go to the United Cerebral Palsy Association…

    • Nec

      RIP Dave, gonna wait for your tweets from heaven

      • Ride

        Reading Dave's last post through his sisters Twitter now… I won't even blame this on onions…

    • Rupert Pupkin

      Dave Rose is the epitome of KCCO. Thank you, Dave and RIP brother.

    • PiratesFan

      You will be hard pressed to find someone who enjoyed living more than Dave. He is a truly amazing story. The epitome of living life to the fullest and not letting anything get you down.

    • JustinFL

      God Bless Dave and his family. RIP. KCCO up there in heaven for us.

    • Tommy

      Dave. What an awesome guy. I wish I had known him longer.

    • a-nom

      For sure, man…this isn't how I thought I'd start the day. It being the last picture on the page was a huge punch in the gut. My thoughts and prayers go to David's family, however I'm sure they can rest easy in the thought that he most certainly is in a great place, chilling with the angels.

      • Hara

        Fuuuuuuuuuck that dude was SO COOL!

        Here's to ya, Dave.

    • Alex

      Wow. I have to work in less than a half hour, been awake less than that and I'm teary eyed. No dust in my eyes on this one. Whoever suggested the Daveonwheels t-shirt, I second that notion. My guess the design will pop up in this month's contest and will win hands down. KCCO Dave.

    • http://www.facebook.com/ryan.lambert.98 Ryan Lambert

      Damn it Dave, you will be missed.

    • Deep Dish

      I can't imagine facing my own mortality like that at such a young age. And how long that letter was. Jesus, didn't they say he could type like 6 words a minute? That must have taken pretty much all the energy he had left.

      That was one brave SOB.

      RIP, Dave.

      • TIMMAY!

        If he was able to go at his normal speed (which would be tough given what he was writing) it would have taken him somewhere around 4.5 hours. I can't imagine having to truly face your mortality and keep such faith in humanity at the same time.

        Dave, you were an inspiration for us. Truly the epitome of how we should all live our lives. Rest in peace.

    • benbobbins

      The world is better for having Dave around, if only for a little while. I hope you're doing some parkour up in heaven while you rock out some Taylor Swift.

    • BrenKay

      Holy fuck… 😦 RIP Dave.

    • http://twitter.com/undefined @undefined

      If everyone enjoyed life as much as Dave did the world would be a better place. RIP Dave.

    • Dukes

      i'm supposed to be a bad ass…..and sobbing like a child…..guess i'm not……soooo sad…..

    • Hassel Shattnerhoff

      If you can read Dave's letter with a dry eye, seek help, you may have no heart.

    • alwaysthatguy

      I never met him, and I just started following him, but as I read this, I shed a tear. RIP Dave and KCCO. You were an inspiration to everyone. KCCO

    • John

      The fact that I shed tears while reading Dave's final blog entry is a testament to how inspiring he was, still is, and always will be. His humor and positive outlook in the face of adversity was amazing, he is the the embodiment of the KCCO mantra. RIP Dave.

    • Michael

      *RIP* David Rose 😦
      My heart goes out to his family.

    • Ryan

      tears at work? Check. .. so I find these cubicle walls don't really hide a crying man very well. First time ive felt compelled to reply to anything.. I only knew a little bit about this, having been brought to it by the chives.. but for real.. what an enlightening solid light soul… the problems he dealt with.. in a gracefull manner are more than the majority of us will have to. The sadness comes from how unfair it is that people that are this amazing are taken while we have octomom's and chris brown's still running around. KCCO, RIP Dave.

        Ryan, I'm surrounded by glass if that makes you feel better…..daveonwheels will be missed. hope you are finally running free Dave xooxoxoxox

      • Ryan

        2 for 2. I re-read it thinking maybe it was the initial shock that got to me.. Nope.. equally powerful. The silver lining is that Dave will be immortalized by our thoughts as time passes. It's funny.. not funny, stand up comedy funny.. but more .. amazing don't have anything else to say so you laugh as a defense mechanism funny… that ive went to funerals for people I know and not shed a single tear.. yet a relative stranger's passing breaks down those walls. Testament to Dave, his spirit, insight and genuine passion for life. Only get a few like this in a lifetime.. also, I think this moment deserves a little back patting to the chive and Erin for turning the world on to this.. very few would have gotten the opportunity without the 2… so a much deserved thank you to Chive and Erin…. lastly… this proves, the star that burns brightest, burn's out the quickest. See you when I get there, KCCO, RIp, Live it up Dave.

      Make sure you raise one for Dave when you go out tonight. Kcco!

      On wings!!

    • J. D. Rage

      for some reason today I hadn't checked the chive till 1:30 which never happens… wierd, my heart is heavy right now, so much stuff I take for granted every day! R.I.P Dave!

    • mojo77

      RIP young man. No exuses, I'm crying at work. God Bless your family and friends who have been with you through your journey

  • babyfartmagizax

      • TheDude

        Damnit. Babyfart is back?

        • MattyDeuce

          Something seems shady about this post of his too…he usually isn't a DMA poster, and it seemed like he was waiting for this post to happen to garner a lot of thumbs up.

          • guth

            If you knew me, which you don't… you'd know I post on any gallery.. and yes I was waiting for the DMA, which isn't that hard when you know the time it comes on. I was hoping they'd post an update on Dave after following and read the tweets on twitter, and sure enough, chive closed out the DMA with it. I only post now when I feel the need to, because if I posted every time I see 0 comments, everyone would be losing their heads still. But people like Dave, or Farrah, or Taylor get my attention enough to break my silence.

            • Word word word

              Ever posted on the second page? Or better yet, something not cliched to get thumbs up?

              • guth


  • MattyDeuce

    #2 seriously, nobody cares about them

  • Obama 2012

    If you vote we will win this election. Vote Obama this year, for hope, for change and for a vision of the future.

    • Stacey Dash fan

      I am black and I do not approve this message.

      • h3yblinkin

        That was awesome

    • Tim

      This is not the place for the political BS!

      • Another Tim

        Amen to that and R.I.P. David

    • MonkeyMadness

      Kiss my ass.

      • Dick

    • whos.mike

      I hope that you stay poor.

    • Rob

      hahahahaha ya because things were so different in his first term. it's actually hilarious watching america from the outside right now.

    • Holmespump

      I'm pro-Obama and I voted you down. I come to The Chive to get away from political bickering.

      • JESSE

        I'm anti-Obama and I gave you thumbs down because no one cares who either of us support.

    • drewmaen

      Yeah keep hoping for change,sorry to say it isn't coming. If you want jobs and reverse the debt vote Romney

    • ziggy

      I am gonna vote, but Obama not getting my vote this time. He has been quite a let down.

    • Yerp

      I think you just lost

    • Oblivious

      Vote for change? What is this, 2008?

      • Anonymous

        The electoral college makes none of your votes really matter.

        • JESSE

          And they are, of course, the most self-less, and honest individuals… :

    • the credible hulk

      I live in Mormon country. All I really need to know is that Obama isn't a fucking Mormon

  • Elliott

    Rest now David… We'll take it from here…

  • RooFeeOOO

    Was going to make a funny/sexist comment about #15 but #30 brought me to Earth. God Speed David, I can't wait to meet you in heaven. Say hi to my papaw for me.

    • TiberSeptimonWheels

      I read #30 R.I.P we lost a brilliant mind way too soon

      • StuBABY

        Ugh this is sad news. #30 Dave you were not only a badass, but you are proof only the good die young. My thoughts to your family and friends you will for sure be missed buddy.

      Says the guy that doesn't have a good comment about #15.

  • David

    Wishing the best for Dave and his family.

  • Sytze

    It's more like morning sadness with the passing of David!!

  • NcouthYouth

    #30 Thank you Dave. Thanks for showing us that life really isn't as hard as we may think it is. You were the epitome of KCCO. #DaveonWings

  • mathatter

  • Mike

    #30 RIP dave.

    • KCO617

      KCCO friend, although I don't think I'll make it to where you're going…I hope it's as peaceful as you imagined.

  • T-money



    • George Zip


      • StuBABY

        I concur

    • Boobs

      In the kitchen where she needs to be.

    • Mike H


  • Steve

    So… Paula dies: nobody gives a shit.
    Dave dies: everyone in tears.

    Sounds about right.

    • THX

      A troll never dies. If they did there would not be tears in any eyes. The good die young, and when a good man dies, everyone cries. I hope peace will reach David's family.

    • TiberSeptimonWheels

      I want to see a death certificate for Paula or it didn't happen

      • Yerp

        Paula's fat

  • Terrance_

    #30…it's been inspirational getting to know you over the past little while. Thanks for all the smiles and I look forward to the day when I get to meet you!

    Even after 5 mins reading his farewell letter, I still can't stop crying T_T

  • NobleChive

    #30 chive on, dude. Everyone, be thankful that you still have a job to wake up early for and all the things and people around you.

  • Sophie

    Dave, you're a beautiful soul. See you in heaven on wheels.

  • djstout17

    #30 😦 so sad to hear about Dave. May he rest in peace, I'm glad the chive was so good to him.

  • DisNinjaSeen

    #30 Damn.. Rest In Peace, Dave. Been reading about what's been going on the last few days and, at least, your in a better place. You Kept Strong and We'll Carry You On, bud. See you on the other side.
