I just stole this from another forum. My father died Sunday morning and I was feeling down. You know what? Try cruising old threads for a pick me up. Thankfully my yankee friend hasn't dwelled on the subject. F√cking relatives come by and are so sorry. Sitting around with hang dog looks staring at me. I hate that shit and where is the food everyone supposed to bring? The aide what takes care of my wife bought soda. Where the food?! Bunch of cheap suckers. I'll leave each one a dollar in my will. Leave the rest to the state for a new boat ramp.
Almost forgot the picture picker upper.

My father led a full life. He graduated HS and had worked since he was 14. Pop retired at 62 making 200k a year in 1988. He always wanted to live on a river so he bought property years before. Paid cash for his house. Once my wife and daughter were going to help my mother shampoo carpet. Daughter didn't want to stop because they had company. My wife said they don't have company, these are Pops vehicles.lol.
Pop lived to be 88. Outlived all his friends. This last year was a sad one. Dementia really sucks you know. My father was always the boss of the family. Now I had to be the boss. He got to be like a big baby. Such a shame, such a smart man.

You've got a sick wife to look after. Get to the other side of that, then you have time to feel sad. You said he died last year, but his body kept going.

Life is serving the shit sandwich this week. Sorry, man.

I don't know, maybe you're not a hugger. Apologies if you're not.
