    So sorry for your loss rin

    Comment


      Very sorry for your loss. Condolences to you and your family.
      Nice idea to do a feast over your "campfire" in memory of your father.

          Thinking of you....

            Walking. Doing yoga. Not getting up on time. Mostly avoiding booze but not drinking enough water. Didn't do and resistance work bc I am so tight just doing yoga I worry I will injur myself if I pickup weight. I think I have showered once since I heard. I should probably fix that

            Cooking. So much cooking.

            Heading to be w step mom at their home tomorrow, she and I will go to the 1000 islands where my dad's oldest brother lives (poor guy has lost 2 of his 3 little brothers now). Not sure how long I'll stay, bought tic 1 way for now.

            Thank you all, so much, for your support.

                    I have also gotten some very interesting "songs of the day" by asking for people to tell me stories about my dad.

                    He had a band in highschool that put out a few 45s, including this song that one of them wrote inspired by that famous pic of jfk jr at his dad's funeral. (My dad is the tenor and I am 90% certain the guitar player bc I recognise his pick/chord style.)

                    Also college dorm hallway mate told me one I had heard from my dad, but from the POV of one of the guys actually marching when it happened, of the time my dad faced 2 large speakers (which were still in our home when I was little kid) out his dorm window to disrupt the weekly forced march of the ROTC group with this song.

                      The first song is very melodic.
                      It's great that you have people to talk to who knew him before you did.

                        Thats very cool! My Dad has been in various bands all my life. He is currently in 2 bands and does some solo stuff(lead/back up singer and lead guitar). I can only imagine the stories and odd songs he has done over the years

                          current streak 106 - preserved by walking and doing yoga.

                          I will start gauntlet when I get back to my own home, I think.

                          I am still not ok. I am starting to do the things I need to to take care of myself a bit better (altho still not drinking enough water I'm sure). Keeping up w french lessons but only practicing, not learning new words atm bc my brain is swiss cheese. Actually applied for a few jobs. Still with (step) mom. We are spared planning a funeral. He donated his body to science and wtf, why would we hire a preacher to speak about an atheist? So in the spring his gleeclub will do a concert outside in the park in his honor and then we will invite anyone who wants back home with us, and have ppl prepare his recipes and bring cards and games and instruments. He made a huge jar or roasted red peppers in his last week, which is really well sealed, and I think that will actually keep just fine so we can serve it then even >.>

                          I get to finalize the obituary today, tho. When you are firming up your end of life preparations like your will, you might want to consider doing an outline of one of those and including it in your paperwork to save some headache for everyone.

                            .
                            thats sounds very nice. Especially sharing in the jar of peppers he had made before passing.

                              The plan for the spring sounds nice.

                                I'm sure your dad has had a full life. Partial evidence of it is you taking his departure so hard, his friends giving him an honors concert, other family members by your side. It's never fair but it is a part of life. Keep taking care of yourself because you deserve it. Try to cope and let time do its thing. I don't think you could feel better for the meantime but, that's normal. It means you loved him. Morne for as long as it takes... There's really nothing else to be done, I think.
