Default Some sad news

Just to let you guys know my Dad passed away Tuesday at the age of 93. It came on fairly suddenly on Saturday as he had to go into the hospital and he seemed fairly stable over the past couple of days but he had pneumonia and with trouble swallowing was unable to eat or drink. While trying to get a mucus block cleared he just gave it up. He lived with me these past 16 years since my Mom died and I'm getting adjusted that he just isn't going to be home any more. I had hoped he could make it to Christmas but is was not to be. Such is life.

Sad to hear Brother. Condolences. Mine passed at the tender young age of 64, back in 1998. Be thankful of the time you had with him, some of us didn't have with ours. 93 is a good long haul. I know this doesn't seem like much but really, I do feel for you. It's tough no matter when it comes, but it sort of magnifies if it's during the holidays for folks.

Remember him well, tell stories. He lives on in you.

My sincere condolences, Wally. And you took on a mighty burden having him on for 16 years. Be proud, at least he never saw a nursing home. Ain't many children who can say that of their parents these days.

Thanks guys, appreciate it tremendously. I think I got everything organized enough to make this a smooth transition. I wish I could have had him for Christmas though.

Understandable. But people are brittle at that age - it happens quickly when it happens and that is that. Are you postponing the funeral arrangements till after the holidays?

Ah. Well, I guess this won't exactly be the best Christmas ever, then.

OTOH, who cares? I stopped giving a damn about the whole thing at about 15, and while it's muy enjoyable to see how much joy and excitement kids draw from it, if they aren't involved then it's much ado about pretty little, mostly. You got siblings?

Nope, just me. ANd I like Christmas. Its fun. A couple of weeks all told of some fund and just being a kid again before you got to start working for real again. I like the break for some fantasy. Reality sucks.

Then don't let anything hold it back. Back in college I once spend Christmas alone, in a room filled with wine bottles, cheap snacks and expensive meats, and a gaming console and fluffy pillows on the floor. It was fantastic.
