The young man I've been corresponding with and speaking with via phone for some time now was finally released from his cancer-ridden body last night at 11:45pm. His girlfriend will collect his ashes and we will be doing a memorial ceremony here when she arrives.

His family disowned him for his love of Azrael and even took away his children because the small town he lived him thought he was a "devil worshipper". They didn't even care that he has been dying since 2001. :shake:

Here's to Zack Tayala, who longed for Azrael's embrace while others tried to keep him from it. You finally made it home! :rose:

Aunt Irene passed away on March 18th. It was particurly sad in that we had to decide to stop feeding her. My cousin (her daughter) was very upset making the decision. I know she would not have been happt had she awoken from the stroke, they said she would not have been able to talk and she had the stroke while singing with the nurses in ICU. It was odd. We were having a ramp put on for mom, and Aunt Irene seemed to hold on til it was done, which allowed mom to attend the funeral. They spoke everyday on the phone, and hadn't gotten together in a few years.

A friend of mine passed away yesterday, May 29th.
She was only 20 years old and it is still a mystery as to how exactly it happened. She died in her sleep and it seems there is a very rare illness that runs in her family that is similar to Sudden Infant Death Syndrome, except the word Infant be substituted with Adult.  
May the truth be found, Kelly  :rose:

Condolences from me as well, Pixie. Sounds like she might have had either an aneurysm or a blot clot to the brain.

Condolences to all here who have lost loved ones... :rose:

Our friend Joe Mickels passed away sometime Monday morning July 28, 2003. I just received the news via instant message, this afternoon.

Some of you may remember him from Westgate parties.
Leilah and Daniel introduced me to Joe nearly 10 years ago, he was my first and one of my closest friends in the city.
It would appear that he passed, peacefully, much like my grandfather did 3 weeks ago: Kicking back, watching TV, remote control in hand.

His parents are making the arrangements now. And his obituary should appear in tomorrow's Times Picayune.

Well, I'll miss him.
Happy Trails Mr. Joe.

Yeah, we just got off the phone with Ed. Joe will be missed. He was pretty much a fixture around our hallowed halls, especially during events and ALWAYS at the Thoth Parade. May he be happier in the hereafter than he was in the here and now.....I know all of the ladies will be waiting for him  :smoke:

Safe journey, old friend!  :rose: We'll post the funeral arrangemnet info as we recieve it on this end.

I'm so sorry to hear about your Grandfather TorzuRor.   :rose:   A peaceful way to pass on.  Some of the good things life has to offer.   The remote...a cold one....

Love,

Hey, thanks.
I honestly don't know how to feel..this is two deaths in under a month. I don't feel sorrow. I just feel like...well stunned in a way.
Like there's something I'm supposed to do, yet I don't know what it is I'm supposed to do. And what I've done doesn't seem like all there is to do.

With my grandfather it was my task to contact all the folks who haven't been contacted...which were all the people on his email list. It took forever to find the right words:
"Jim's dead, Jim" didn't make the cut.


And with Joe, well, you know I had to drop by here since I was pretty sure you guys would want to know, there would be more food at the gatherings now. :) Then I contacted his old co-worker and good friend of mine. In general I think we are all happy he is no longer suffering, I'd hate for him to ever have had to suffer old age alone, as he had spent his life.

Well at least I still have the "White Trash Christmas Photos", and as long as a few brain cells remain I'll remember the trippy times we had.

Oh just a note, if you have instnat messengers of any kind, log all your chats, it may be all thats left of someone when they leave this world. I have 30 from joe. Electronic immortalization.

Over 500 emails between me and my grandfather, took me 4 hours to sort through. There's a paper trail as well somewhere up in the attic.

Ok live it up people.

This memorial is for my Great-Uncle Everett, who died on Wednesday. He was my Grandmother's brother (God rest her soul). His funeral is today at 1 P.M. in Pueblo. He was 85. I seem to be running out of "Greats" here.... it sucks to grow old and watch everyone you love die. To my knowledge, I have three "Greats" left-- 80,84,90 years of age... then my Grandfather-- 83.

Just adding some insult to injury-- Happy Birthday to my sister Susan today (wherever you are) and Happy Birthday to my Dad on Saturday, and Happy Birthday to my son Damian (7) on next Tuesday, Happy Late Birthday to ScaryBaldGuy (Coinneach) on Thursday (yesterday), Happy Late Birthday to Katie (July 28), Happy Birthday to my cousin Amanda next Wednesday, Happy Birthday to my God-daughter Twyla next Friday, my other cousin Garrett on the 24th, my Aunt Marge on the 25th.... strange how we can celebrate amongst a death in the family. People die as others are born... sometimes I simply think that all of time should just stop for once. Let us catch our breaths....
