two years ago August 25, 2010 by kellyhogaboom with 5 comments dailies I wrote a pretty good obituary. Previous Post writings (rantings?) Next Post CHOPPY
Thinking of you and your family! My grandad and father-in-law passed away almost 6 years ago, just a few days apart from each other. It never really gets easier…
“People” (Who ARE these people, anyway?) say that it gets easier with time. I don’t agree. Easier isn’t the word. Things change over time and I learn to accept and move things around in my life and head so that I can continue to survive and in fact, thrive at times. Thinking of you.
That’s probably the best obit I’ve ever read – it seems to really give a good snapshot of who your dad was. It’s never easy to lose a parent and you’re never prepared for how it feels when they’re gone. I know you probably think of him often. Sending you hugs and good thoughts.
Wow, thank you. I guess being a writer has it’s positive aspects. I wrote this so quickly right after he died! Like within a short time after he’d been taken from the house. I can’t imagine (in my case) waiting to write it… Pain was so fresh and terrible and writing it later would have been overwhelming.
Yes, I think those “people” are wrong, at least in my case. I feel acutely his loss and lately I wish I had him to talk to. He was a good mentor for me to talk about my wacky ideas. He never pretended to think or feel things he didn’t.
