Fun Gus, hey thanks for the suggestions. I hope I can get direct tv wherever I move to since not watching Falcon games kills me however I'll keep it in mind if I need a game(s) taped and I'll reimburse you.I'm about 99.9 sure dad didn't have anyother insurance policies but if the program can check other policies that he may have it might be of some use.
Alot of the financial stuff seems to be straight forward. Will meet with the lawyer Wednesday and real estate agent same day. The furniture will probably go to consignment although I may try to keep something for sentimental reasons.Whatever the real estate agent says since we have dealt with him 3 other times and he is very knowledgable.My brother in law said that an auction is a possiblity or we can fix it up and hire contractors to do it.We just want the best value we can get and its going to be hard to sell before winter but I sure hope so.
I guess on the bright side I am free to do what want. I was before but still needed to be here for reasons I stated above.It isn't like I haven't moved before to different states its just now there is no home base which I mentioned above. I don't even want to think about the holidays since it won't be the same.
I'm a member on facebook and have reconnected with some people that I haven
talked to in 27 years. This was before dad passing away but I reconnected with a friend in New york City who plays french horn in broadway shows and does alot of studio st uff. He wanted me to come out to hear some music so perhaps I will take him up on it after I get things settled.
It's ironic losing mom 2 yrs ago I didn't know what the grieving process was just had to experience it. As time goes on there are moments that still choke you up but not nearly as bad as when it happened. Losing dad just now I'm going through grief but as reason stated above its grief but different since I have no parents left.
I really need to try and find some blessings at this time. I was lucky to have such great parents,they lived a long time,born in a country that with hard work and luck you can make a living unlike some place like Ethiopia,Africa etc where they know no different. Sure it would be nice to have material things but there is no replacement for family.I'll just have to remember the good times I had with mom and dad and my belief system will see them again after I pass away. We all know there will be a day each of us will pass away. My belief system life is a test treat other people well,do good deeds and follow Jesus.That's me and everyone has their beliefs but someday I hope I'm in a place where I don't have to worry about all the things you go threw in life pain,suffering,grief but a place of beauty that you can play jazz with any musician you want and learn from by talking to them,watch Falcon and Braves games, movies and just so many possibilities its endless what we think as humans.
I like to debate alot and what happens after you die has always interested me. Near death experiences so knowing there are many frauds out there but there just are to many stories of people coming back and telling their experience that it's real and we can't imagine the peace your in. I would really like to talk to someone about their near death experience rather than books or reading articles on the internet. I think all of us would like to know if the otherside really exists but right now I have to go on faith and things like near death experiences can sure ease my grief.
Here I am getting elaborant again wri ti ng a novel which I didn't mean to. Bare with me guys the grieving process is difficult to go through and writing on this board helps get my emotions out.Thanks a bunch for listening to me and maybe it helps someone else when they go through this process.
Hey. Scout. I'm a crass Libertarian 42 yr old , born of 2 parents with different religions ( baptist, catholic )...I can tell you I really had a religious experience goin to the far East: seeing thier religion and thinking about the one's I was brought up in...This is the 'batchelor board', I guess only BnB and I have kids...
BUT: after having my own little poo machine, and seeing the East. I cannot believe it's all 'chance'. I just cannot buy it: and I promise you I am a cynical bastard of enormous proportions.
I can say you will see him again: his soul, at least. I buy into that. This cannot be some Plinko machine. I agree there is too much smoke to think that we are all just 'gone', but if you asked me Scout 5 years ago, I would have scoffed.
I honestly believe we will all be together again: my only question is the 'how'. I do not buy into the 'city of Gold' pitch, that seems a little too 'sham wow' for me and always has. I thin we get rotated around but we all find each other once or twice on the carousel.
Hey, I'm not kidding if you need advice. Please dont hesitate....
Your a Jazz guy, but beer and CnW helped me when my mom died. My Dad hated Jazz, you were a lucky boy
