Dear Boo,

My deepest sympathy on the loss of your father.  It doesn't matter how old we are, when we lose a parent, it's just devastating.  You are a very important member of our Monkey Family and we are here for you.    an angelic monkey

IM, I see you in here and I wanted to tell you that I love you.  Not a day goes by that I don't think of you and your family.  I never let an opportunity pass where I can ask a loved one or neighbor to keep you and your family in their prayers.

I pray for God's healing for you and your family.  Klaas has my email if you need to talk.  I am available any time day or night.

xoxoxo
Much love to you and your family.

Thanks Bearly~I have been lurking on and off, it just seems like so many monkeys have lost someone they love profoundly in the past two weeks, it's sometimes hard to post as my heart breaks for everyone enduring tragedies now. I want everyone to know how much I love them, and appreciate their support, also I may in time take you up on your kind offer.

Boo~I want to tell you how so very sorry I am for your loss....I told Deenie the very same thing, that I am a "daddy's girl" too and can't even imagine the loss I'd feel if he were to pass, but I do know that everyday I pray for Eli to share his strength and courage with me to help me try and move forward, and believe it or not it's starting to make me feel better. So, I know you can gain strength thru your father, and all your friends here at SM because we love you, mourn with you and you will continually be in our prayers along with your family.  an angelic monkey

an angelic monkey IslandMonkey, I haven't been around long and am not sure what happened within your family but from what I can gather I believe you must have lost a grandson and just wanted to give you my deepest condolances on your families loss. I cannot even begin to imagine your pain but wanted you to know that your family is in my prayers and may God be with you and help you all through this truly difficult time. God bless you and yours and again my heart aches for you all.
thanks HN!! I know God is with me, and even my grandson's presence........the pain will subside one day and then I will only be left with him wonderful memories and the joy he brings to me every time I remember him  an angelic monkey

Today we made the arrangements. So much to do, so many decisions to make when all you want to do is crawl into a hole and pull the top in over you. It went smoothly, my sister and I agreed on almost everything and we had my older sister on the phone to make decisions along with us. I only got vetoed once, I wanted the flag draped across the coffin and they wanted it folded inside. He will have a Military funeral complete with escort.

The only bad moment I had was when I went into a clothes store to pick something out, everything looked ridiculous to me and I started getting upset. My daughter got me out of there and home. First thing I do is come here.  Do you guys even know what a source of comfort you are?? I read in the Caylee thread and laugh at certain comments, it brings a sense of normalcy to my life at the moment. I love you all.

My Boss just called me to check on me. I have to tell you this woman is the greatest boss in the entire world. She asked where the funeral will be and what time. Then I asked how much time I get. Don't worry about it, take all the time you need. She said she lost her Father too and knows what I am going through. She said take this whole next week and we will revisit the schedule later. Don't worry she said, she just wanted me to be OK. God let me to this job and now I know why, she is such a blessing to me, my eyes are filled with tears. One more burden off my shoulders.  My daughter Jenna is hovering around me like a mother hen. God bless her too. I need it.

A1? Why would you think that?? I love you sweetie, there is absolutely no reason for me to be angry! If we ever disagree on the board that is strictly a back and forth thing and people have changed my mind about things. Thank you for your wishes. Hugs to you, thank you for posting that even though you thought I was angry. You got class girl!!    I was looking for your email and couldn't find it.

To all the Monkeys who are grieving:


"Nothing can make up for the absence of someone who we love,
and it would be wrong to try to find a substitute;
we must simply hold out and see it through.
That sounds very hard at first,
but at the same time it is a great consolation,
 for the gap,
as long as it remains untilled,
preserves the bonds between us. 
It is nonsense to say that God fills the gap;
He does not fill it,
but on the contrary,
He keeps it empty
and so helps us to keep alive
our former communion with each other,
even at the cost of pain."

Boo, I have grown to love and appreciate you so much. I was so sorry to hear about your
loss. Even tho your Dad is no longer with us, you have many special memories that no one can take away. Those of us who have traveled this journey know how you feel and are here to support you.Take some time for yourself but realize that there will be times far removed from this day when a song, a poem or a recollection will ambush you and you will
grieve a little more. This is normal and it does get easier with time. I will be praying for God
to comfort and sustain you and your family.God Bless.

I have a friend who said she is watching me. She said her parents are alive, so she has been untouched by the death of a loved one. She sees the pain her friends are in when they have to deal with this issue. So I wrote her the following email. I hope it will help one of you.

If I had to tell you one thing, it would be to spend as much time with them as possible. Call them, email them, send them cards and notes through the mail. They really treasure communication the most in their twilight years. I have found unopened gifts and such through out the house. We thought we were bringing him into the Millennium with technology. He cared nothing for that, but he had every letter and card we sent him.

Ask questions about their life, I am shocked at the things we are finding out about my Dad. He was involved in so many projects from Kiwanis club to the Lakeshore School Educational fund. I want to hear his voice, he wasn't much for the camera but I'm going to have to ask my sisters for video. Take video and have them answer questions and recall their youth. It may be years after their passing for you to view it, but you will have it and you will be able to visit with them once again.

Call them constantly, check up on them. If only under the guise of you seeing what book they are reading or a simple question. At least you can go to sleep knowing they are OK at the moment. I wish I had gotten my father that Life Alert thing I saw on TV. He died alone, I have no idea if he suffered or if it was quick, the phone was in his kitchen and he hated his cell phone.

Have them get all their paperwork together in one file, my Dad did this and it was a blessing. If possible discuss what they want for their funeral. We all think about it, I have even mentioned to my daughter things I would like. Most children don't want to discuss it, it's too painful, but you have to know what they want, it will make things easier when the time comes. They don't want to leave you with difficult decisions, they want their affairs in order. No one wants their children to struggle with their issues and finances. Have them put your name on their accounts and a quick deed for the house. Life will be so much easier. Funerals are fricking expensive, so far it's close to $9,0000. Those pre-paid funerals aren't a bad idea. Dad kicked this around a few years ago, but decided to leave the money in the bank so it would gain additional interest. It's so hard to think straight making these decisions. Writing obits, writing a eulogy, trying to remember what year he was in the service or when he was Superintendent of Lakeshore Schools. So much to do in the space of a few days. Funerals are only 2 days now, things have changed.

Help them clean their home. It's difficult in the later years to bend over, catch that dust bunny, get rid of that stack of newspapers in the corner. As a present hire a crew to clean from top to bottom. Yeah they may bitch and complain, but man, nothing makes you feel better than a clean home, it gives you a sense of control again. Pay a lawn service to do all the outside stuff from lawn to bushes. It helps so much.

Sit with them and watch a movie or TV. My Dad had a list written of all these old movies he wanted to see. I love old movies and have seen quite a few on his list, I would have loved to watch them with him, but he never said a word. I always thought he was watching the news or golfing. Just bring over a munchie or dessert, kick back and hang with them. These are moments you will treasure forever.

Boo,
Well, your email to your friend did help me...That truly was an awesome piece of advice... I am going through a lot with my dad (he is recovering from a major stroke) and you are so right about the conversations.  That is what he hungers for... nothing else.  I call him every other day just to say hi, but really am checking in on him.  He lives alone, which is amazing for someone recovering from a major stroke, but it is his wish.  He no longer needs (or wants) a caregiver in his home and he manages his life on his own, even with paralysis on one side.  He is getting stronger everyday and he got to this point because of being so stubborn.  If it was up to the doctor's (except for one doc) my dad would still be in a nursing home.

I will get my video camera out and start to record him with my children and will ask those questions about his life.  Even though he had a stroke, his memory is still as good as it was before.  He just talks different now and it takes a bit for the words to come out right. 

I could go on about our relationship, which has been tough at times, but he is still my dad, no matter what.

Boo, thanks for putting it in perspective!! 

You are in my heart and prayers daily and I know that my words will not ease your pain right now, but just know that you have a lot friends here and every one of us (some you know well and some you don't) are here for you!! 

Big hugs from Cali...

(((((((((((( hugs )))))))))))))))

p.s.  I am going to call my dad... thanks Boo
