Subject: Obit: Sparky
From: katlaughing
Date: 29 Nov 04 - 08:37 AM

My dad passed away this morning sometime around 3. He always told me if I cried and carried on too much he'd come back to haunt me. I asked him if that was a promise. I am relieved because he was in so much discomfort and hadn't been able to play music in over a year, but oh gawd how I shall miss him...no more stories, no more songs...I know he'd want me to tell you one and all, thanks so much for being there, for caring, for sharing with him over the years.

I love you, Daddy,

"katty"

Kat, I'm in between getting kids off to school and my eyes are full. Sparky is so clearly in you in so many ways. And I am thankful you shared him with us so many time over the years. I doubt you'll have to "cry and carry on" for him to stay with you.

I can't leave for Scotland without telling you that I love you Kat.
I can only hope that Sparky finds Tommy and they both come back to see us.
I feel so helpless. You have been my rock for the last few days Kat and I feel like a pebble now that you need me. I wish I was able to give you more. I trust though that we know each other well enough in that you understand that my Dearest Sister.
Sparky...may You walk in tall grass and bright Sunshine. You are so Loved and your Daughter is all you could have ever wished for.
A wonderfilled, Beautiful, Kind and Caring Woman.
She got that from You Sparky. She has all the good you had to give.
May Your Journey be swift and filled with Light.
Take my Love along with you Sir.
My deepest sympathy and Love to you Kat and Rog, Rue, my little Man Morgan and all the Family.

no more stories, no more songs....

May they all bubble up from your heart when you most need to re-savor them, and when the world most needs to hear you pass them on. May all his love and wisdom flow forth from you. May your tears bring you release so that all that remains of the grief is the blessing of him forever in your heart.

It's never easy to lose a parent, even when they're ailing and you wish for the pain to cease. Thanksgivings will be difficult, poignant, for a few years, but will also be richer for the stories you will tell about him. My sympathy to you and your family.

I didn't know Sparky physically but somehow he is in my heart because of how much you've shared him with all of us. I'm so glad to have the tape of his songs and it will be a part of my collection for as long as I am on this earth. I know that you will carry on his stories and his songs. He is in your heart and your memory and no one can take that from you. I hope that today you feel the love and the caring that you are so often the first to offer others. I hope we can meet in person someday. I have a lot to thank you for myself.

You and Bet are in my thoughts and in my heart during this difficult time.

Much love and condolences,

Kat,

I'll always feel I knew him---through you, through his songs that you and he graciously sent to me, and through the many musical places where he and I coincided --- and where we sang the same songs differently--and carried on the tradition.

Sparky was, as you know, a real link on the chain. He'll keep on keepin' on !

Love,

Folks, I need some help with some old feelings. Dealing with his second wife and her kids and grandkids. As little as possible, but still one of them got in a little "dig" and I really want to rise above it. I know it didn't really matter to dad and it shouldn't to me, but they've decided to bury him in Utah instead of over here in CO where his folks are. He wanted a plain pine box which they will not do. They are pillars of the community and have to keep up appearances, imo. They are at least honouring his request that there be no funeral, just a graveside service. They are writing the obit and keeping it short because they don't know how much they will be charged for it and he "didn't leave any money for expenses." I got them to add one line, "he passed his love of music on to his kids."

Please send me some "stay kind and calm" thoughts for the next few days as we try to sort things out, the service as well as his instruments and gifts etc. which we gave him over the years. Sorry if that sounds ghoulish.

Thanks a bunch,

kat

Hi Kat,

My deepest sympathies to you.

I have little say that you haven't heard. I did notice there is a balance when my Dad died. I have never gotten over the loss but I have never forgotten the stories or the lessons either. And very often when I think back on something he said or had done. I find he has taught a new lesson.

He still keeps teaching and touching me. I'm sure Sparky will do the same for you.

Don
