paternal mortality
    #3326055 - 11/05/04 10:23 PM (12 years, 1 month ago)

my dad was born in 1927...
he died this afternoon...
he was a closet agnostic...
(and my mom is a true believer...)
and i don't know what's going to happen next...
but i am glad that he was a part of my world for over a half century...
so much he gave me...
so much...
thanks dad, i love you...
i will miss you always...

and the wheel turns...

I journey with you my friend from afar.
Keep silent for his wishes are still in you.

Dear gnrm23 -
Please accept my sincere condolences. My own Dad passed away on August 10th and so this thing is still very much with me. I wish you well in the days that are to follow.

Regardless of what your Dad believed or didn't believe, it isn't that kind of knowledge that is salvific anyway. All of our beliefs change over the lifespan. It is, in the end, how we treat others, since that is a direct revelation of what kind of being we are beyond thoughts, ideas, beliefs. I Know that you Know all this, I'm just attempting to mirror it for you at this difficult time. I'm sure you'd read the Bardol Thodol for me when the time comes if I asked you.

Peace be with you this dark night - the peace that passes understanding.
-MtG

I'm sorry to hear that.  :sad:

It's something most of us will have to face unfortunately.

you've got a good heart, "uncle gnrmi", my prayers are with you.


after a year out in the pnw, i'm home again in the cowtown. looking for a "real" degree for a viable source of income, trying the computer engineering gig at the university and am looking into all sorts of certifications to see if i might be able to waltz my way into a career. but don't hope to be here long, issue 1 and 12 (smoking ban) and our electoral votes got me the blues right now... (took me some 3 hours to vote, btw, you?)

dunno if i'll be making it to any of 'em fests this coming year, but if you're ever passing through columbus, dinner is on me....

look forward to our paths crossing again someday down the line. peace and blessings - CJ

Everything is better than it was the last time.  I'm good.

If we could look into each others hearts, and understand the unique challenges each of us faces, I think we would treat each other much more gently, with more love, patience, tolerance, and care.

It takes a lot of courage to go out there and radiate your essence.

I know you scared, you should ask us if we scared too.  If you was there, and we just knew you cared too.

As it always does....the cycle will continue.

Remember the good, rejoice in it.
Remember the bad, take heed from it.

Celebrate his life in what ways you can.

It was his time, as it was my grandfathers, and my girlfriend from years ago.


If there is a God, in either the Christian or Muslim sense, i can't see him punishing someone for merely not believeing. Your father lived a good life, i'm confiident.



Carry on, my friend from days past. Carry on. The burden does grow lighter.

:heart:

My parents still being here, it's hard to imagine your feelings now. I know I'll be a "case" when my mom moves on.

Dealing with the passing of others close to me, I realised that if I take what I loved about them and will miss the most and become that myself for myself and others, I can keep the spirit of them yet living on here and it makes the missing part a little easier.

Sending you love and warmth!!!!

The only thing that burns in Hell is the part of you that won't let go of life, your memories, your attachments. They burn them all away. But they're not punishing you, they're freeing your soul. So, if you're frightened of dying and you're holding on, you'll see devils tearing your life away, but if you've made your peace, then the devils are really angels, freeing you from the earth...
